The Navy is looking for a small business to build a curriculum to train their cyber command teams. The contract to train its cyber command personnel and the Marine Corps is estimated to be worth $26 million.
The service’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command released a combined solicitation for a five-year program to train military personnel and civilians in the Marine Corps Forces Cyberspace Command and the Navy’s own Fleet Cyber Command. The $26 million contract, set aside for small business, requires the creation of both online and in-person cybersecurity courses “to meet operational standards at National-level organizations providing support to cyber security missions.”
The solicitation says the training will be aligned to support both services’ ongoing cyber development efforts. The contractor will build the curriculum around an example annual training requirement “and identify knowledge gaps such as computer science theory, information technology networks, cyber security, emerging [offensive and defensive] project technical requirements, and certified ethical hacking skills,” says the solicitation, posted last week.
