The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has posted a draft request for proposals on a follow-on contract for systems integration services to NOAA’s Research and Development High Performance Computing and Communications infrastructure.
NOAA said Friday in a FedBizOpps notice it aims to issue a final RFP in October and hold an Industry Day in Silver Spring, Maryland in line with the final solicitation.
CSRA currently provides systems integration services for NOAA’s R&D HPCC infrastructure under single-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract that is set to expire May 06, 2018, and has a one-year transition option that will run through May 2019.
NOAA considered integrating its follow-on R&D HPCC and operational HPCC acquisition requirements into a single procurement vehicle but the agency said it decided not to pursue the idea at this time.
Interested vendors can feedback on the draft RFP through Sept. 12.
