The Homeland Security Department is soliciting vendors on the General Services Administration's Millennia contract to build and run the Homeland Secure Data Network, a secret network for intra-agency communication.

The department issued a request for proposals late last year but withdrew it so officials could complete their review of the program and align the network initiative with other DHS systems projects.

This month, after settling on a plan for the network, the department issued the solicitation, said Lee Holcomb, Homeland Security's chief technology officer.

Millennia contractors Computer Sciences Corp., Lockheed Martin Corp., Science Applications International Corp. of San Diego and SRA International Inc. of Fairfax, Va., are likely bidders for the HSDN contract. Proposals are due to the department within weeks, Holcomb said.
