TSA wants a woman-owned disadvantaged small business to support its I-STEP program
TSA is planning to award a set-aside contract to an economically disadvantaged woman-owned small business to help the agency manage its Intermodal Security and Training Exercise Program, or I-STEP.
The selected woman-owned vendor will provide management services, help administer security training programs, help deliver security exercises and assist in the development of risk-based security planning solutions.
“Working in partnership with various transportation sectors, I-STEP provides a variety of products and services that enable security partners to enhance security capabilities, build partnerships, and gain insight into transportation security,” explains a solicitation document issued by TSA on December 12. “For instance, I-STEP gathers and analyzes information from transportation security exercises, and other sources, to harvest multi-modal security best practices, lessons learned and improvement opportunities.”
The I-STEP program is intended to reduce security risks to critical transportation infrastructure, including freight rail, mass transit, highway and motor carriers, pipelines and the aviation sector.
The TSA’s solicitation document calls for responses from prospective woman-owned contractors by January 27, 2014. Further information is available from Delonte McKinney, a contract specialist, at 571-227-4838 or [email protected].
