News: Draft RFP for NIST/NCCoE Research and Development Center Now Available

Two government agencies (the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE)) are looking for input regarding the establishment of a Federally Funded Research and Development Center. Recently, the two agencies released a draft RFP (request for proposals).

According to Federal Business Opporunities, “the purpose of this partial Draft RFP is to improve the understanding of Government requirements and industry capabilities, thereby allowing potential offerors to judge whether or how they can satisfy the Government’s requirements, and enhancing the Government’s ability to obtain quality services at reasonable prices, and increase efficiency in proposal preparation, proposal evaluation, negotiation, and contract award.”

Interested parties are encouraged to respond to the notice in accordance with the attached “Attachment 1- Partial Draft RFP Instructions to Interested Parties.” You can find all of that information on the FBO website.

In addition, The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) will be hosting an Industry Day on January 8, 2014 for parties interested in the proposed Federally Funded Research and Development Center to engage vendors and federal employees in a discussion about the proposed requirement, the NCCoE, and the forthcoming Draft Request for Proposals (RFP) for the requirement.

The event will be held in Rockville, Maryland and you can find more information about that right here.

According to a release, The Industry Day will focus on the mission of the NCCoE and ongoing and future projects of the NCCoE, along with the Draft RFP for the FFRDC requirement. The Industry Day will also allow vendors to market their relevant capabilities to others in attendance. The Industry Day will first provide all attendants information on the NCCoE, its objectives and its direction.
