  • The Army is looking for contractor that can provide interactive virtual training for information assurance. This is a small business set-aside. A pre-solicitation notice on FBO.gov says the contractor will need to provide, among other things, project management, course module development and a web portal to host a training and tracking system. The procurement is being handled for the Army by the National Capital Region Contracting Center. It requires secret security clearance from DoD. Responses are due by September 30th.
