Cybercom Seeks Contractor to Help Build Big Data Platform

The U.S. Cyber Command is seeking a contractor to support the development of a Big Data Platform through engineering expertise, analytical development services and software licenses.

Cybercom said in a FedBizOpps notice posted Monday that the BDP will use a scalable cloud computing infrastructure to support packet capture data, data analysis and secure information sharing across the command.

For the BDP development, the contractor will work on risk-reduction prototyping, data acquisition, engineering support, updating the BDP tool suite and beta testing.

The command also plans to seek services for the sustainment and enhancement of the platform for both classified and unclassified BDP instances.

Cybercom looks to issue a contract with a base period of one year and two additional one-year option periods for the program. Interested parties have until Dec. 11 to provide responses to the command.

Meanwhile, the federal government intends to negotiate and award a sole source, firm-fixed-price level of effort contract to Enlighten IT Consulting.
