The FBI plans to release a request for proposal on May 6 to outsource cyber professionals and support services under a $100 million contract, Nextgov reported Monday.
Frank Konkel writes the FBI is looking for a contractor that can “recruit, retain and replace” subject matter experts.
The subject matter experts will work to consult, collect and analyze data, and develop programs, according to the report.
Nextgov reports that the RFP highlights the demand for cybersecurity professionals with high-level clearances to work for the FBI’s cyber division.
The FBI intends to deploy the cyber experts within its intelligence, national security, criminal, cyber, response and services branches, Konkel reports.
