Three small businesses have been awarded advisory and assistance services contracts from the Missile Defense Agency, each of which has a ceiling of $209 million.
Under the indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts a.i. solutions Inc., of Lanham, Md., A-P-T Research Inc., of Huntsville, Ala., and Bastion Technologies, of Houston, will assist the Missile Defense Agency’s Quality, Safety and Mission Assurance Directorate, according to a Jan. 21 Defense Department statement.
The contractors will have the opportunity to bid on individual task orders and will assist the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) in assessing the engineering, technology, production and programmatic practices and processes used to develop and operate the Ballistic Missile Defense System.
The contracts were competitively awarded under a small business set-aside request for proposal, DOD said.
The work will be managed by the MDA's engineering and support services program office and performed in Huntsville, Ala., and at other MDA locations.
The performance period runs through December 2014.
