In advance of competition, NOAA extends OSGS Information Systems Security Engineering & Sustainment Services contract

Solicitation: 1332KP20FNEEG0017

Contract Award Number: GS35F438AA

Task/Delivery Order Number: 1332KP20FNEEG0017

“This is a limited sources justification for a follow‐on to provide continued security and sustainment engineering to NESDIS Office of Satellite and Ground Services (OSGS). It will be a Time and Materials (T&M) order against the current contractor’s (iCES Corporation) GSA schedule contract #GS‐35F‐438AA.”

“Under their various OSGS Security Engineering Support and Plan of Actions and Milestones (POA&M)/SSA tasks on the GSA ESM BPA, iCES provided general security engineering support to a wide variety of NESDIS systems as requested [including Earth System Prediction Capability (ESPC)/Environmental Satellite Processing and Distribution Services (ESPDS)/NPP Data Exploitation (NDE), Jason/NOAA Jason Ground System (NJGS), Polar‐orbiting Operational Environmental Satellites (POES), Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES), and Satellite Controller Communications System (SCCS)]. Some examples are listed below. This general security engineering support to NESDIS systems will be continued under the PROJECT #7: Security Engineering/Implementation task of this proposed requirement.”

“This is a logical follow‐on because this proposed requirement is a continuation of the tasks that the contractor started on their GSA ESM BPA as iCES continues to sustain legacy systems, plan for future systems and implement security engineering initiatives as described in Section 3 above. . The GSA ESM BPA has reached its estimated value and the new sustainment contract (Operations, Maintenance and Support or OMS) which this requirement would fall under, won’t be in place until the second quarter of fiscal year 2021. As such, the need for the security sustainment of NESDIS projects and two NOAA systems with personnel familiar with them and deeply knowledgeable of the next steps and design implementation details given the tight timeframes requires this limited sources procurement.”

“… The Follow‐on Order is planned with a base year of 20 January 2020 to 19 January 2021 and an option period of 20 January 2021 to 19 September 2021.”

“Any future sustainment engineering requirements will be transitioned into the Operations, Maintenance, and Sustainment (OMS) contract, which is expected to be in place by January 2021. The OMS contract is being procured using full and open competition. It will not be set aside for small business but will provide opportunities for subcontracting.
