The Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Office (CDAO) is seeking a novel Business model in its effort to develop an integrated service model as the Department’s lead for data, analytics, and AI in this Call to Industry. In this context, integrated service model means the suite of tools, services, capabilities, data, models, and other resources to accelerate the Department’s adoption of data, analytics, and AI.
CDAO seeks to enter into non-FAR agreements with entities whose solutions are favorably evaluated by CDAO representatives and Subject Matter Experts. As such, assessment activities conducted in furtherance of a potential project award agreement are considered competitive in the same manner as a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) or Commercial Solutions Opening (CSO), and solutions will be evaluated independently of one another primarily for technical merit. This notice serves as notification of the intent to satisfy the reasonable effort to obtain competition under 10 U. S. Code, Section 4022b (formerly 2371b).
