VITA has published a request for proposals (RFP) for enterprise managed security services (MSS) on eVA, Virginia's e-procurement portal.  

Interested security vendors should submit their proposals before the RFP closes on July 15.  

The MSS RFP presents a strategy shift in how future MSS will be delivered. Supplier(s) will be responsible forproviding enterprise MSS for the following two service categories:   

  • security operations center (SOC), and/or    
  • security engineering (SEC-ENG)   

VITA may award one or more awards as a result of this sourcing effort, which could result in different suppliers providing SOC and SEC-ENG services. Supplier(s) will be required to integrate into VITA’s multisourcing service integrator(MSI) modeland provide security services that are flexible, rapidly provisioned, cost effective, transparent and elastic to meet the current and future needs of VITA and customer agencies. 

Please find all information on the requirements and scope of this RFP by visiting the eVA website and searching for “enterprise managed security services.” 

As a reminder, the RFP will follow procurement standards and confidentiality is a must. Should you receive any inquiries related to the RFP, please direct them to the RFP's single point of contact, Kayla Anderson.   

We are very grateful to all of our partners who have contributed to VITA’s MSI model. We are looking forward to continued partnership with new and existing vendors in the future. More information on the MSI model, including links to current service tower contracts, is available here.
