The Federal Aviation Administration is seeking information on industry capabilities to help inform its strategy for the procurement of cybersecurity operations support services.

FAA plans to compete a five-year, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for such services in support of its security operations center that helps monitor information security incidents and protect the information technology infrastructure of the FAA and the Department of Transportation, according to a request for information posted Tuesday.

Interested vendors should prepare and submit capability statements that outline their ability to identify, detect, protect and respond to cyber threats, best practices, tool sets, staffing and technologies. 

Companies may also choose to provide responses to 13 topics of interest, including security monitoring in a hybrid environment, architectural design of a security operations center, vulnerability scanning, data loss prevention and DevSecOps.

General Dynamics“™ information technology business is the incumbent on the FAA cybersecurity operations support contract.

Responses to the RFI are due April 9.
