The Defense Department has awarded six government contractors each a contract worth more than $40 million to provide support services to the Navy and other unnamed DOD and federal agencies, according to a Sept. 8 announcement.
BAE Systems Information Solutions Inc., Booz Allen Hamilton Inc., Computer Sciences Corp., Honeywell Technology Solutions, Inc, Science Applications International Corp. and Scientific Research Corp., have each received $40,055,252 indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity, cost-plus-fixed-fee, performance-based contracts to provide tactical, strategic and operations support services with an emphasis on information assurance, the DOD announcement said.
These contracts include options, which if exercised, would bring their cumulative value to an estimated $210,568,360.
The work, which will be performed in Charleston, S.C., and Washington, D.C., is expected to be completed by September 2012. But if all options are exercised, the work could continue until September 2016.
These multiple-award contracts were competitively procured via the Commerce Business Daily’s Federal Business Opportunities website, and the SPAWAR e-Commerce Central website, with 14 offers received.
Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic, Charleston, S.C., is the contracting activity.
