DHS Posts $3B Data Center, Cloud Solicitation
The Department of Homeland Security has issued a request for proposals for a potential 10-year, $3.35B indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract that covers enterprise data center, colocation and cloud to hybrid computing infrastructure.
A solicitation notice posted Thursday states that the Data Center and Cloud Optimization contract has a five-year base ordering period, an initial three-year option and another two-year option.
DHS is seeking a contractor to help manage the department’s data repository located at NASA’s Stennis Space Center in Mississippi and operate a future enterprise information technology hosting platform.
The notice says a potential vendor should provide access to at least two infrastructure-as-as-service providers through the DCCO environment.
Interested parties can submit offers through Jan. 21.
