GSA Seeks Proposals for Domain Name Registry Mgmt Effort - top government contractors - best government contracting event

ComputerPointerThe General Services Administration has kicked off its search for a contractor to assist in the management of the domain name registry and registrar service for federal agencies, state and local governments and native sovereign nations.

GSA seeks companies to aid in domain registration, perform website hosting, accept and store authorization letters, set  up point of contact accounts, provide access to data on the domain database, maintain and protect the database, GSA said in a solicitation released Thursday.

The agency also wants that preparation, certification and authorization to be performed in order to avoid vulnerabilities and counter threats to the .gov generic top-level domain.

GSA also requires companies to use verifiable standards, physical and logical security controls and management controls for system resiliency.

GSA's Office of Government-Wide Policy oversees the operations and management of the .gov internet domain registry and the agency serves as the “policy authority” for Assigned Names and Numbers.
