Background: The Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA) is a DoD Center for microelectronics technology, acquisition, transformation, and support. DMEA is composed of highly specialized engineering facilities and microelectronic engineers that work in close partnership with the major defense contractors and the semiconductor industry to provide support for fielded systems across all U.S. military organizations.

Access to DMEA systems (classified and unclassified, networked and standalone) for DMEA employees, contractors, and customers is a vital part of the engineering process. Information Assurance (IA), the proper protection of the networks, computers and data, is mandatory under existing DoD directives and instructions. Compliance with DoD directives is accomplished through the development and implementation of local security policies and procedures, application of Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIG), use of cybersecurity software and Intrusion Detection Systems, and certification and accreditation of all systems.

Government's Requirement: The objective of this contract is to acquire technical and professional support services, systems management, computer operations, systems programming, and cyber security defense for all DMEA information technology, networking, communications, safety, surveillance, and critical infrastructure software, systems, and applications.

Work to be performed includes technical, administrative, and professional services in support of DMEA IT/IA requirements, including: * Semiconductor foundry process automation and system integration, development, and support * Business Process Management and knowledge management in support of Semiconductor Foundry Processes. * Information Assurance, DoD Certification and Accreditation of systems and networks, * Compliance with changing DoD security requirements * Custom application and system development and support * Network and PC hardware/software installation and maintenance in the areas that use and store hazardous chemicals and gases. * Computer/network systems support, computer network defense, exchange server administration, trouble reporting, information center support, technical and computer equipment maintenance support, internet, and intranet development and support. * Telecommunication system support, communications network support, and video teleconferencing support

The contractor will also support numerous commercial, DoD supplied, and internally developed software applications for current and legacy systems. The list of software to be supported includes specialized process automation and control applications, custom database applications, and numerous operating systems and applications that are subject to internal development, patching, upgrades, and new installations. Software developed in part or in whole by the contractor requires the use of DoD and industry best practices, full testing, deployment, documentation, user training, maintenance, updates,

Proposed Contract Type and Term: The proposed contract will be a commercial single award IDIQ. Task orders will be issued as firm fixed-price. A task order will be issued annually for ongoing Operations & Compliance work, with additional task orders for new development projects as needs arise. There will be a base ordering period of one year, with four one year option periods (5 years total).
