The Army’s Combat Capabilities Development Command (DEVCOM) is searching for a Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) Talent Acquisition and Hiring Event Management Software, according to an RFI posted on

DEVCOM is looking to use the new cloud-based end-to-end platform both during recruitment events across the country and for general recruitment. The command is looking for a cloud-based product, which will include a mobile app, that allows job candidates to upload resumes to a virtual database for hiring managers to view anywhere. The solution will need to support 25 administrative users, 1,000 staff users, and 250 events annually.

For hiring managers, the new solution will serve as a talent management tool and will need to provide an event calendar, event metrics, summary statistics, staff management functions, and pre-event marketing. The tool will also need to be able to track all candidate information and interactions, instantly review and organize job applicants in a centralized location, create automated hiring workflows to send communications, handle evaluations, and provide recruiting insights with access to metrics and reporting.

In terms of security, the solution must use a Department of Defense/ Defense Information Systems Agency-approved commercial cloud service with a FedRAMP environment to store resumes and data. Additionally, the platform must be Privacy Shield Compliant and maintain the privacy of the applicants and their personal information. Network security must also include Incident response, intrusion detection system, security monitoring, and threat intelligence capabilities. The mobile app will also have to include both native sign-in and single-sign-on authentication, encryption at rest, and encryption in transit.

The RFI said the product must be supplied to DEVCOM by Sept. 25, 2021. The product must also use COTS, non-developmental software, and require only user configuration and setup.
