Spare me the "What would you do if...." hysteria.

Please don't try the "Well, Klinton would be worse..." tripe.

Cowboy up, and read.

Hello - sorry to be off topic - but at one time you expressed an interest in getting some broad leafed ramps / leeks. There is a post with a source they can be ordered from - but they are way up in cold country and can't be harvested and shipped until mid-May.

Best Regards - AQH

Actually, the original Fed Biz Ops post
(https://www.fbo.gov/index?s=opportunity&mode=form&id=22aa793f75ce05efd160cfa36d7a8acc&tab=core&_cview=0)
is a Request for information - not a RFQ. Its generally used to get an idea of existing private sector capability, for any number of possible uses.
In this case, its an interest in monitoring social media - my guess is its based on the multitude of abuses by ISIS, foreign governments, terrorists, etc. But the purpose is not clearly described, so we can believe its make work for the myriad of government employees engaged in sitting on their hands every day if we want to.
