The US Coast Guard (USCG) intends to award a contract to Techne, Inc. to further develop a Business Intelligence (BI) material solution utilizing the Acquisition Directorate’s (CG-9) existing Business Intelligence System. CG-9 is responsible for providing data-driven metrics to ensure that the Coast Guard is promoting projects with the requisite technical, contracting, and program management skills to deliver best-value systems and assets to Coast Guard operating forces. The Coast Guard currently has an existing system in place that is utilized to integrate this requirement. The Acquisition Directorate has deployed and is operating a comprehensive Acquisition Performance Management system using commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) BI software. The performance management system known as the Acquisition Performance Management System (APMS) is the SAS-based BI system consisting of enterprise business intelligence, data integration, and performance management components. APMS receives data from multiple sources both internal and external to the Coast Guard and displays the information for executives and managers through a portal, web reports and metrics.

The anticipated period of performance will be one twelve-month base period with two twelve-month option years. The anticipated start date of the period of performance will be, 6 May 2019.
