The Army has issued a draft request for proposals for an integrator for its Army Knowledge Online portal.
Under a contract set for award early next year, the Army wants a vendor to consolidate and operate its successful online portal. There are currently more than a half-dozen contractors working on the portal.
The Army recently unveiled the latest AKO version, built on software from Appian Corp. of Vienna, Va. In the new version, the service added collaboration features for setting up online forums, chat rooms and e-mail lists.
With more than 1.7 million users, the Army portal is considered one of the world's largest intranets.
The Army wants to issue a final solicitation next month for the AKO Enterprise Services deal. The service did not release information about the likely value of the contract.
