General Dynamics Information Technology will provide logistics and other support services to the Marine Corps under a firm-fixed-priced contract that could be worth as much as $25.2 million.
The award to GDIT’s Intelligence Solutions Division, Fairfax, Va., calls for contractor logistics support for command, control, communications, computers and intelligence sustainment support (C4IS2) systems, according to a June 21 Defense Department announcement.
This contract will continue contractor logistics support services for critical Marine Corps C4IS2 systems while a follow-on contract is competed. It also will provide a transition between the current intelligence information, command and control, equipment and enhancements (ICE2) contract, which expires on June 30, 2010, and the follow-on competitive contract, the DOD said.
The contract has a base period of six months and two three-month options. The scope of services to be procured will be the same as is currently being provided under the ICE2 contract and represents the minimum level of effort required to maintain the systems during the competition and awarding of the follow-on contract.
Work will be performed in multiple locations in the United States and abroad and is expected to be completed by December 2010.
The Marine Corps Systems Command, Quantico, Va., is the contracting activity.
General Dynamics Corp., of Falls Church, Va., ranks No. 6 on Washington Technology’s 2010 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
