A request was recently provided to OS AI from an equity backed mid-tier professional services company that is seeking additional details related to this upcoming Department of Homeland Security RFP seeking project management, strategy and policy development, and technical assistance services, which drew 12 bidders the last time around.  

We at OrangeSlices AI do believe in the need for more and better-informed competition, so provided below are 1) opportunity details provided by the requestor; 2) some key points of contact; 3) related pursuit/capture data; and, 4) when possible, the odds that the incumbent will win this again.  

Competitive Details (if known) related to the predecessor contract: 

  • Funding Agency: DHS / Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) 
  • Incumbent: Deloitte 
  • Contract Vehicle: This was last competed on GSA OASIS 
  • OS AI Note: According to the latest forecast, any recompete is expected to be competed on OASIS. This was actually initially marked as a SB set-aside action on the DHS Forecast, but it was quickly changed to “TBD”. Smalls should gear up in anticipation of some type of an RFI, as the agency looks to justify the final choice.  
  • Anticipated Solicitation Release Date: 2023-08-01 
  • Contract Details and Spend to Date for Award ID 70RCSA21FR0000037 

Scope: A focus of the Cybersecurity Division (CSD) Operational Support Services contact is to provide “Project management, essential strategy and policy development, and technical assistance services to support cybersecurity missions. The Contractor shall assist the Government with strategy formulation, policy development, performance and project management, and technical support that the Cybersecurity Division (CSD) requires to protect the Homeland by (1) identifying, analyzing, and responding to physical and cyber events; and (2) supporting the Government’s activities in establishing and coordinating outreach programs and stakeholder partnerships that enhance and support protection activities.” 

** Please note that OS AI will not speculate here as to the accuracy of any scope details provided and/or any current plans related to the timing, details, and likelihood of any recompete.
