Report: DISA Plans to Issue Final Solicitation for $8.2B DEOS Cloud Procurement Contract in June

The Defense Information Systems Agency intends to release in June the final solicitation for a potential 10-year, $8.2 billion contract that seeks to procure a commercial cloud service to accommodate all of the military’s office productivity and email platforms, Federal News Radio reported Monday.

DISA said it is in the process of responding to a set of industry questions for the single-award Defense Enterprise Office Solutions contract that will have a five-year base term and five option years and expects companies to submit their offers within 45 days following the release of the final request for proposals.

The DEOS contract will cover office suite, collaboration and online meeting tools, email platform, content management software and internet protocol-based replacement for the Defense Department’s video and voice teleconferencing systems.

DISA plans to initially transition approximately 1.5 million DoD users to a single cloud software-as-a-service offering within 18 months of the contract award, according to the report.

Brian Hermann, portfolio manager for unified capabilities at DISA, said DoD believes awarding the DEOS project to a single vendor would help facilitate interoperability and collaboration among Pentagon personnel.
