Army Issues RFI for Biometrics Repository Modernization Effort

The U.S. Army is looking for potential sources of systems engineering and integration support for the design, development, testing and deployment of a biometrics-based identity intelligence platform hosted in cloud and on-premises environments.

The systems integrator will perform Increment 1 activities for the Biometrics Enabling Capability effort including sustainment of the Department of Defense's Automated Biometric Identification System, the Army said in a notice posted Tuesday on the beta SAM website.

Contract work will also cover migration of all ABIS workloads to an Amazon Web Services cloud environment at the Impact Level 5 category.

According to the performance work statement, BEC 1 will serve as the DoD's repository for biometrics data on threat actors and persons of interest to support intelligence operations at the national, tactical, strategic and operational levels.

BEC 1 will have an on-premises operational environment as well as a Cloud Integration Development Environment and Non-Production/Development Environment.

CIE-DEV and NPE will be hosted in AWS environments and support BEC 1 testing operations.

The Army plans to award a one-year contract with four one-year extension options for the effort.

Responses to the request for information are due on Nov. 19.
