The Department of Homeland Security released a draft solicitation to transition its headquarters data network to the General Services Administration's $50B Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions telecommunications contract, FCW reported Thursday.

DHS looks to update its OneNet and LAN A networks based primarily in the Washington, D.C., area. LAN is a fiber-ring, private Ethernet network, while OneNet offers transport for the department's components to their individual systems.

"DHS is providing critical, in-development strategy, scope, and evaluation criteria information associated with its ongoing EIS efforts," Gregory Blaszko, contracting officer at DHS' office of procurement operations, wrote to EIS contractors in an email obtained by the publication.

The draft solicitation covers the department's headquarters, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and other component agencies. DHS intends to pilot cloud capabilities, implement “like-for-like“ transition and advance modernization through zero-trust models, virtual network functions and software-defined networking, according to the statement of work.

DHS on Tuesday discussed the draft with EIS contractors through a teleconference.
