The Securities and Exchange Commission is currently seeking a cloud-based data analysis and visualization system to support its pilot electronic-discovery program, according to a notice posted Thursday on the Federal Business Opportunities website.
Services outlined in the small business set-aside solicitation include “design, configuration, testing, electronic document discovery processing, data and document loading, system administration, creation of electronic productions, pilot system deployment, training, and operational support of the SEC electronic Discovery 3 application.”
The contractor is additionally required to integrate the analytical and review functions of the eD3 application, which must be based on a current, commercially released software and hosted on Amazon Web Services “to facilitate more rapid and secure data transfer.”
SEC noted that the project was launched to evaluate the feasibility of electronic discovery software in a cloud-based environment compared to an on-premises platform.
Vendors have until Aug. 13 to submit their proposals.
