1.0 Purpose of this RFI
This Request for Information (RFI) is to obtain information regarding the availability and capability of all qualified sources to assume management of and further mature the Defense Health Agency Global Service Center (DHAGSC). The DHAGSC is the integrated service center supporting all centrally managed Military Health System (MHS) medical information systems and associated communications and computing infrastructure (C&CI). The purpose of this RFI is to determine various industry partners' ability to meet the requirements outlined below. Both small and large businesses are encouraged to respond. The information gathered as a result of this RFI will aid DHA in moving forward with a Request for Proposal (RFP) for DHAGSC support. DHA anticipates contract award for this requirement in spring, 2015.


2.0 Background
The DHA Health Information Technology (DHAHIT) delivers and manages health care operations through design, development, test, evaluation, and deployment of healthcare information systems worldwide. The Chief Information Officer (CIO) is responsible for Infrastructure and Operations (I&O) directorate who integrates C&CI requirements. DHAHIT captures and analyzes end-to-end performance data for C&CI components and MHS systems including Armed Forces Health Longitudinal Technology Application (AHLTA) and Composite Health Care System (CHCS), the military's electronic health record. DHAHIT uses the results of the analyses to optimize network and end-user system performance.
DHAHIT provides and manages the following C&CI products and services:
• Network Protection
• Wide Area Network (WAN) Connectivity
• Circuit Management
• Local Area Network (LAN)
• End User Devices (EUDs)
• Computing Center Operations
• Capacity Management
• End-to-End (E2E) Performance Measurement and Monitoring
• Hardware/Software Maintenance and Sparing (HSMS)
• DHA Global Service Center (DHAGSC) formerly the MHS Service Desk (MHSSD)
o MHS Application Support (Tier 1 and Tier 2)
o MHS Common Infrastructure Support (CIS)
o MHS Blades Systems Administration (BSA) formerly Enterprise Blade Server (EBS)
• Network Security Operations Center (NSOC)
The DHAGSC formerly called the Military Health System (MHS) Service Desk (MHSSD) serves as the entry point into the MHS information technology (IT) customer support structure. It provides toll-free, worldwide access to identify, log, asses, analyze, escalate, track, report and resolve incidents for centrally-managed MHS Applications and Systems, 24 x 7 x 365 for over 9 million worldwide customers, including Active Duty, Guard, Reserve, Dependents, Retirees and other beneficiaries of the Military Health System. Currently the DHAGSC averages 27,000 calls per month and logs 32,000 incidents. Analysts are collocated in government facilities primarily in San Antonio, Texas with a secondary site in Falls Church, Virginia.


The DHAGSC also provides comprehensive around-the-clock support and monitoring of the network infrastructure components and security suites deployed to Military Treatment Facilities (MTFs) and other MHS data centers. In addition to network and monitoring services, the DHAGSC manages all aspects of the current development and production Server Virtual Hosting Environment (SVHE) that runs MHS applications for the MTFs. This includes remotely maintaining all blade frames in a standard configuration, all aspects of the underlying blade architecture (SAN and SAN switch fabrics), monitoring and managing the blade environment, back-up, and the distributed applications hosted at the twenty MHS Application Access Gateway (MAAG) sites through a central operations center. Additionally, some staff with Secret clearance is required to access the Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRnet) and classified data.


DHA Global Service Center: Application Support
Tier 1 and Tier 2 Application Support Analysts support approximately 35 core MHS applications and facilitate incident resolution for over 190 other MHS applications. They assist MHS customers in resolving problems with applications such as AHLTA and CHCS, the military's electronic health record. Tier 1 Analysts support MHS customers by answering, triaging and ticketing all inbound calls and electronically submitted incidents. This level also assigns and escalates incidents whenever they cannot be managed at the Tier 1 level. Tier 2 Analysts are responsible for providing escalated (second level) service for MHS applications. The Tier 2 Analysts' primary responsibility is to provide advanced software/systems support and subject matter expertise to assist Tier 1 Analysts as necessary on supported MHS applications.


DHA Global Service Center: Network Common Infrastructure Support
The Network Common Infrastructure Support (CIS) team goal is to maximize network availability to over 148 MTFs worldwide in support of all MHS applications and the Defense Health Headquarters (DHHQ) network. Highly skilled network engineers and analysts are specifically trained to address the complexities of resolving problems on military networks across all DoD Services. Network support also provides proactive troubleshooting through network event, incident and problem analysis, by responding to detected events and triaging for impact, resolving network related incidents and gathering and reviewing performance data for threshold conditions. The CIS Tier 2/3 support provided includes:
• Network event analysis and diagnosis (both proactive and reactive)
• System performance measurement
• Network protection monitoring
• Network Management System ( NMS) system administration


DHA Global Service Center: Blade System Administration

Information Technology Service Management
In order to streamline operations, the DHA began an IT Service Management (ITSM) transformation in 2009 using the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITILv3) framework developing and implementing integrated processes. Using an iterative approach, the DHAGSC rolled out incident, problem, event, and knowledge management processes and procedures. In addition, they play key roles in change and IT service and asset management, as well as supporting information assurance for managed systems.


The current trouble ticket system is Remedy ITSM 7.6.4. The Remedy ITSM suite is hosted by DHA; the Remedy software, licenses and hardware are government owned, contractor operated (GOCO). The Remedy ITSM tool is supporting our ITIL methodology implementation using the following modules: Incident Management, Problem Management, Change Management, Knowledge Management, Asset Management, Service Level Management, and Service Request Management.
