Pursuant to Federal Acquisition Regulation Part 10, the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) Procurement Office, in support of the DoDEA-Europe Student Transportation Security Services Program (STSSP), is conducting market research to identify potential sources capable of providing bus security training to bus drivers and enhanced safety attendants (ESA) performing services in Italy and Spain.

The period of performance of these services will include a base period and four 12-month option periods, with an anticipated start date of 1 July 2020.
