The Mission and Installation Contracting Command (MICC), Dugway Proving Ground (DPG) Installation Contracting Office (ICO) is seeking sources that can provide information technology (IT) support services for the DPG's West Desert Test Center (WDTC). Dugway Proving Ground is the nation's Major Range and Test Facility Base (MRTFB) for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosives (CBRNE) defense programs. The Data Sciences Division at the WDTC has the responsibility of providing IT support to the various WDTC divisions in support of the CBRNE mission. This support encompasses the maintenance and support of workstations, servers, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) and Government-off-the-shelf (GOTS) software administration and maintenance, full software development life-cycle projects, and full service desk functions. The focus of all efforts is support of the Test Mission Management System (TMSS). TMSS is an enterprise wide system (hardware and software) that supports the acquisition, transfer, analysis, presentation, delivery, storage, protection and archival of all test data. There are approximately 30 physical servers in the test center with nearly 100 virtual servers running on VMWare. Servers are primarily Windows Server and Linux. Networks are Nortel and Cisco with ad-hoc wireless networks using a variety of products from Cisco, Bridgewave Antenna Products and Persistent Systems. Storage systems are EMC VNX and tape backup. There are approximately 750 workstations supported on the TMSS network. These machines are primarily running the Army Windows 7 AGM build. In-house software is developed with tools such as Visual Studio .NET, C++, and Java; data analysis programming is developed using PV-Wave and SAS. Many custom applications are hosted and maintained within a Microsoft Sharepoint 2010 environment. Support for the stated environment should encompass the following categories: a) Software Development (business, analytic and scientific); b) Software Maintenance; c) Systems Administration; d) IT Service Desk; e) Storage Network Engineering; f) Storage Network Maintenance; g) Network Engineering; h) Network Maintenance; i) Business (IT) Analysis; j) Technical Documentation; k) Software and Systems Training; l) Software and Systems Testing; m) Information Assurance; n) Project Management. Interested contractors shall have knowledge of working with related chemical and biological equipment systems and programs. A determination on the contract type, mechanism for procuring the services, and possible set-aside will not be made by the Government until after the market research has been completed. No proposals are being requested or accepted under this synopsis.
