2. Project/Requirement Information:
a. Background. This requirement is for Pentagon Force Protection Agency Security Integration and Technology Support (PSITS) services with an objective to obtain an efficient and continuously improved security information technology (IT) infrastructure that most effectively meets the PFPA business mission and strategic goals that ensures compliance with all applicable Federal laws, DoD regulations and PFPA security and force protection policies and procedures, and facilitates transitions to new mission systems as new technologies are introduced into the PFPA security in-frastructure, as well as to operate, maintain, secure and sustain the PFPA mission systems.
The Pentagon Force Protection Agency’s (PFPA) mission is to provide force protection, security, and law enforcement, as required for the people, facilities, infrastructure and other resources at the Pentagon Reservation and for Department of Defense (DoD) activities and DoD-occupied facilities not under the jurisdiction of a Military Department within the National Capital Region (NCR)”. This responsibility includes security of the buildings; Access Control; anti-terrorism and force protection; chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive (CBRNE) protection and detection; and other key functions. The Agency is divided into multiple directorates and divisions, each performing specific responsibilities to carry out the mission of the Agency. The agency consists of a mix of government, military, and civilian contractor support personnel (approximately 1200 total users).
PFPA personnel are located mainly in the Pentagon, Crystal City, Suffolk Building, Mark Center, and the Defense Health Headquarters. However, PFPA personnel are located at other sites that fall within the agency law enforcement and security jurisdiction. PFPA also supports contract guard operations at numerous buildings throughout the Pentagon Reservation and National Capital Region (NCR). As the number of personnel assigned continues to expand and grow, the requirement for computer and communications support will continue to grow. To fulfill its mission, PFPA relies on the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Joint Service Provider (JSP) for Desktop/ Common IT functions and support. PFPA elements also operate a separate network supporting specific security related applications. Based on PFPA’s evolving and expanding mission requirements and the complexity of the under lying assets that support this mission, the PFPA has determined that through the integration of existing and new IT and communications assets that greater mission effectiveness and economies of operation are to be gained.
