The overall objective of this contract is to provide for enterprise Geographic Information Systems (GIS) administration services for RISD Systems. Technically skilled personnel providing these services must be adept enough to address complex technical issues, concerns, and problems with industry-standard enterprise GIS systems.
RISD has a number of Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) enterprise
systems and applications that facilitate National-level geospatial needs and workflows in support of park-, regional-, and program-based customers within NPS. These server-based enterprise applications are currently deployed in a variety of configurations and at different software version levels and are licensed through the Department of the Interior (DOI) Enterprise Licensing Agreement. We are planning to continue to modernize, grow, and develop more robust geospatial systems that support best practices in terms of availability and performance. Systems are currently housed internally in the two primary NPS data centers, but we are exploring options for cloud deployment of similar infrastructures in support of the Department of the Interior (DOI) Data Center Consolidation project. Following a performance-based acquisition approach, the contractor shall furnish the necessary personnel, materials, equipment, and software to support server application installation and configuration, maintenance, and administration, as well as, troubleshooting and coordination services required to meet or exceed NPS program objectives. Furthermore, given the pace of change in the information technology and enterprise geospatial systems marketplace, it is impossible to anticipate how individual RISD system requirements will evolve over the life of the agreement. The NPS will incorporate advances in technology that will allow it to continue to build enterprise GIS systems that work better and cost less. Throughout the life of this agreement, the NPS contractor is encouraged to continuously seek ways to incorporate innovative and emerging technologies that in the most economic and efficient manner improves system and mission performance.
