The U.S. Air Force intends to award a sole-source acquisition contract to IBM for the supply the military branch’s Air University with a software package designed to help users analyze statistical data.
The service branch said in a FedBizOpps notice published Friday that Air University needs an enterprise-level, general purpose statistical analysis software for use across the institution.
IBM will integrate the software package on an Air Force server along with individual .mil workstations under the potential firm-fixed-price contract.
The Air University, a component of the Air Education and Training Command, offers education that spans pre-commissioning to the highest levels of professional military education for the Air Force’s officers, enlisted and civilian personnel.
Work under the contract will occur at the Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama from Oct. 1, 2017 through Sept. 30, 2018.
