Labor considering solicitation for ESA's support system

The Labor Department is performing market research before it issues a solicitation for a contractor to manage and operate the agency's Employment Standards Administration's mission-critical support system.

In a notice, Labor said it will likely issue a request for proposals by April 12, which will be distributed to vendors registered on the government's Central Contractor Registration database.

ESA's mission-critical application support system consists of hundreds of servers running UNIX and Windows operating systems, hundreds of databases, and several terabytes of online and replicated data, the notice said.

The system provides the platform and operating environment for 12 major applications comprising hundreds of sub-applications, external interfaces and infrastructure components, as well as office automation services such as e-mail and other commercially available applications, Labor said.

Interested contractors must be able to provide all labor, supervision and transportation necessary for managing, supporting, operating and maintaining the mission-critical systems, Labor said.
