Air Force – Hanscom Issues Own OTA Problem Statement for EITaaS NaaS
AFLCMC/HNI sent notices directly to a “select pool of companies” last Wednesday, June 25th, for the initial Enterprise Information Technology as a Service (EITaaS) Risk Reduction Effort (RRE) Problem Statement for Network-As-A-Service. The RRE asked their selected pool of
carriers .. companies … to submit Approach White Papers to focus on ‘deployment and operations of a secure, reliable, measured, commercial data and voice network’ for both wired and wireless solutions.
The RRE identified other non-evaluated topics that will be the focus of future RREs: End User Devices/Storage, Compute and Store, Enterprise Service Desk and Printer Services.
This limited release to a select pool of companies follows earlier NaaS RFI releases by HNIB on the GSA NETWORX contract only to carriers. There was no mention of NETCENTS-2, the Air Force mandatory use contract for IT services, or why it was not used for this effort. Responses are due July 9th.
