On January 27, the U.S. Air Force posted a request for information (RFI) for Enterprise Cyber Capabilities. Responses are due by 4:00 p.m. Central on February 26, and early submissions are encouraged.
This notice constitutes a Sources Sought/Request for Information (RFI) for industry comment. This RFI is in consideration of a potential solicitation for Enterprise Cyber Capabilities (EC2) at multiple locations throughout CONUS.
The Enterprise Cyber Capabilities (EC2) program seeks to organically leverage economies of scale and reduce the Air Force’s overall IT footprint by providing an avenue to conduct services acquisitions from a strategic perspective, leveraging the buying power of the Air Force cyber enterprise.
The scope of the EC2 proposed contract vehicle is to perform multiple activities necessary for the Air Force to build, operate, support, defend, extend, and engage cyberspace networks to ensure warfighters can maintain the information advantage as US forces prosecute military operations around the world. This includes enabling fulfillment of the AF cyber mission by supporting/enabling the cyber tenets of Operate and Maintain (O&M), Training, Management and Policy, Protect and Defend, Analyze, Collect and Operate, Investigate, and Securely Provision.
The intent of this RFI is to locate potential sources for this requirement. The information obtained in this RFI will be used to build an acquisition strategy for EC2 at various installations. All submissions will be used for market intelligence purposes, will become the property of the Government, and will not be returned.
