DISA extends deadline for Encore II RFPs

The Defense Information Systems Agency has notified vendors that the deadline to receive proposals for its $13 billion Encore II Information Technology Solutions contracts has been extended until mid-February.

The request for proposals for Encore II went out Dec. 5, with the original deadline set for Jan. 30. But John Garing, DISA's CIO, said some questions came up during the process that required pushing back the deadline.

A DISA spokesman said Garing wouldn't elaborate further.

Under the 10-year Encore II program, multiple indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts will cover hardware, software licenses and services for DOD and other government agencies.

The IT buying vehicle is intended to migrate Defense agencies and services to an integrated environment consistent with the Joint Vision 2020 concept.
