The office in charge of acquiring enterprise tech for the Army is looking to add new capabilities to defend the service’s networks.

The Army’s Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems (PEO-EIS) issued a request for information Friday in search of potential cybersecurity, risk management and cybersecurity system engineering services — particularly in support of its defensive cyber-operations in the cloud.

“The scope of this effort includes Cybersecurity, Risk Management, and Cybersecurity
System Engineering activities to support [defensive cyber operations] assessments and authorization of [defensive cyber-operations Suite of Complimentary Systems], critical emerging technologies, and mission capabilities, across multiple secure computing environments, to include authorized CSP hosting environments,” the solicitation reads.

Under that broad need, the Army is looking to support its Cyber Protection Brigade and Cyber Protection Teams with cybersecurity program management, information security system engineering, continuous monitoring of its risk management framework, configuration management, and cloud hosting and security engineering.


The RFI doesn’t comment on possible contract length or value. Most work would be performed at Fort Belvoir, Virginia.

Responses are due by Aug. 3.
