DOD commissaries seek legacy support, innovation

The Defense Commissary Agency is looking to industry to maintain the baselines of its three legacy networks, while developing better applications to replace the stovepiped systems.

In a presolicitation posted yesterday, the Defense Commissary Agency asks for a single contractor to manage and maintain the DeCA Interactive Business System, Computer Assisted Ordering and the Pick Management System, three legacy business systems supporting all Defense Department users.

Both DIBS and CAO were developed in-house and have been maintained by the commissary agency for ordering, receiving, warehousing and inventory management. PkMS is a commercial system that provides warehousing functions at DeCA distribution centers in Europe.

"All three are mission-essential systems that require support 24 hours a day, seven days a week" for the current legacy baselines, the presolicitation notice said. "The government requires systems and software engineering support services for these systems and to develop replacement applications for DeCA business systems that comply with DOD's Business Enterprise Architecture."

The Defense Information Agency Contracting Office should post a request for proposals by April 25. The winning bidder will be responsible for analyzing, designing, developing, evaluating, testing, and offering help desk and deployment support at the agency's Fort Lee, Va., headquarters and at DeCA locations worldwide as needed.
