The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency plans to award Ball Aerospace & Technologies a one-year, sole-source contract to provide design and development support for NGA’s Accelerated Cloud Transition program.
NGA said in a FedBizOpps notice posted Tuesday the contract covers data tagging support for the Intelligence Community Information Technology Enterprise's GovCloud platform and commercial cloud services.
Contract work also includes the provision of cloud-based submission and storage services through the establishment of links to additional GEOINT data sources, cloud data management services development, analytics support through enterprise data services development and improvement of identity authorization and authentication services.
NGA said it expects the company to commence work on the contract on March 4.
The agency also noted that it plans to issue next month a request for proposals for a follow-on contract to provide future data tagging sustainment services in support of NGA’s plan to migrate GEOINT data to the cloud.
