Orlando, Fl (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
Finally after long last, the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) has just released a follow-on RFP (request for proposal) on FBO.gov for cloud storage services worth $427 million. The DISA contract they are calling Enterprise Storage Service or ESS II has a base project length of four years. The contract is replacing a previous contract awarded to ViON Corp in 2007 for $700 million. The DISA states in their RFP they are looking for ‘state-of-the-art’ storage capacity to help meet new and existing customer requirements. The properly registered government contractor that wins the solicitation will have to install and provide daily technical support to the DISA cloud servers that contain confidential DoD data.
In 2012, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) demanded that the Department of Defense (DoD) create a functional way to transfer its computing information from data storage centers to cloud storage units. The NDAA is a federal law that specifies the budget and expenditures of the DoD. It manages the spending breakdowns and the amount that is delivered to registered businesses, as well as set-asides that are awarded to small business government contractors. The DISA hosts DoD services in their data centers, which prompted the need to expand their computing solutions. In order to bid on and work government contracts, businesses must obtain a DUNS number and must complete their System for Award Management (SAM) registration. Successful contractors also develop aggressive government marketing plans, which include the creation of a profile on government websites such as the SBA’s Dynamic Small Business Search and automated bid notifications to their email from FBO.gov. Third party registration firms, like US Federal Contractor Registration, have helped thousands of companies cut through the red tape and start bidding. Their dedicated case managers help businesses register in SAM quickly and correctly. Their expertise with federal regulations also allows them to identify and fix any problems in existing registrations.
