DISA and GSA make new awards in FCSA CS2 contract

Eight businesses awarded contracts to support large-scale mission-critical service delivery

As part of the Future Commercial Satellite Communications (COMSATCOM) Services Acquisition (FCSA) program, the General Services Administration and the Defense Information Systems Agency today announced the award of the Custom Satellite Communications Solutions (CS2) contract to eight businesses.

CS2 awardees are:  Americom Government Services, ARTEL, DRS Technical Services, Hughes Network Systems, Intelsat General, Segovia, TeleCommunication Systems Inc., and Vizada.

“A primary objective of the FCSA program is to align DoD and federal government mission partner requirements with highly qualified industry suppliers in a manner that combines volume and whole of government needs in remote areas to optimize government leverage with industry,” said DISA vice director RADM David Simpson in a statement. “The award of the final FCSA end-to-end service area completes the new business model and positions us to acquire comprehensive, technically superior and cost-effective COMSATCOM services in a more competitive manner for partners.”

CS2 is the second set of indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contracts designed to allow CS2 contract holders to compete for task orders that will provide customized, customer-defined end-to-end solutions that include satellite bandwidth, teleport access and network management, the equipment needed for satellite communications and engineering support.

The CS2 contracts have five-year contract period (three base years with two, one-year options), and a ceiling of $2.6 billion.  Awards for the companion CS2-SB small business contracts for smaller-scale end-to-end solutions and professional satellite support services were made earlier this year.
