The NLCC PEST Support ID/IQ contract is sponsored by the National Leadership Command Capability (NLCC) Directorate, of the Operations Center (OC), at the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), in support of National Leadership Command Capability Service and Infrastructure Office (NSIO), Secure Enterprise Services Office (SESO), and Joint System Engineering and Integration Office (JSEIO).
- NSIO - NSIO primarily provides communication services to external mission partners including other agencies within the DoD and other Federal Government agencies. These services include the installation and operation of communication programs and projects that are at various stages of execution, telecommunications network installations, and other services related to information technology and telecommunications.
- JSEIO - The JSEIO serves as the principal systems engineering and technical integration staff for the DoD. In coordination with other departments and interagency organizations, the JSEIO conducts systems engineering to develop and implement an integrated NLCC communications and computer network capability using appropriately validated operations requirements.
- SESO - SESO provides service delivery, service design, and is the system operation arm of the NLCC directorate.
DISA, via the DoDIN, is responsible for ensuring the United States Government (USG) possesses and maintains a secure and modern command, control, and communications capability to meet the Defense and National mission standards. To maintain command capability throughout peacetime and all levels of conflict, the United States (US) must develop robust communications pathways and perform ongoing analysis of threats from attack, survivability of communications infrastructure, and capabilities of the communications systems to respond to and recover from natural disasters and continuity of information infrastructure for National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications (NS/EP – Executive Order 12333).
The DoDIN is responsible for delivering assured National command, control, and communications capabilities against many evolving and dynamic sets of natural and directed threats in a highly dynamic political and technical environment. For that reason, DISA requires flexible contract services to obtain a broad range of industry skill sets, including some that are highly specialized and uncommon.
