The United States Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) issued a request for information on Feb. 14 for support for the command’s small applications, including help with a cloud migration and continuous delivery. Responses are due by February 28.
The RFI notes that contractors are responsible for moving four applications to a cloud service provider and providing sustainment services in accordance with agile development principles. Currently, the apps sit in a legacy data center with quarterly releases in a waterfall manner.
“The desired end-state is to realize Continuous Integration (CI)/Continuous Delivery (CD) as part of DevOps,” USTRANSCOM notes.
Potential contractors would need to provide monthly status reports on activities, sustain the apps on a day-to-day basis, create failover plans, and provide technical support. While the contractor is responsible for the security of the software, the RFI notes that USTRANSCOM “will be transitioning to the use of a centralized software installation/implementation team that will perform code scans, builds and installation of the code into the Government-owned environments.”
