“The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has a requirement for expert consulting services for an architecture modernization effort. This will position the SEC to be in compliance with their Strategic Goal #3 which calls for elevating the SEC’s Performance by enhancing its IT Support Infrastructure, Analytical Capabilities and Human Capital Development.
The SEC intends to negotiate on a sole source basis, pursuant to FAR 6.302-1, with The MITRE Corporation, an IRS sponsored Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC), as these requirements cannot be met as effectively by existing resources. MITRE is a non-profit firm specializing in research for government agencies, as such will operate in the public interest with objectivity and independence, and free from organizational conflicts. MITRE Corporation is uniquely capable of providing expertise and analytical support to the SEC to develop and deploy a new, responsive target architecture while reducing the operating risks of implementing a new architecture and ensuring operational continuity.”
