Army plans release of RFP for $700 million project

The Army next month will issue a request for proposals for the IT Enterprise Solutions program, a $700 million project central to a larger initiative to consolidate disparate information systems into an integrated, enterprise system, officials said.

Olga Lawrence, assistant project manager for the Army Small Computer Program, said the RFP, scheduled for release April 7, will mesh two separate contracts'enterprise hardware and enterprise mission support services'under one acquisition.

The Army hopes to award the performance-based, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts to at least five vendors this summer, Lawrence said.

The ITES buying vehicle, managed by ASCP, is part of a larger initiative called Army Enterprise Infostructure Transformation. AEIT will replace dozens of legacy systems and will become 'a single Army network, one portal,' said Kevin Carroll, the Army's program executive officer for enterprise information systems.
