IDIQ task orders call for assistance with cyberspace systems

Four of the nation’s largest government contractors have won Navy task orders under a multiple-award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract with a total potential value of $204 million over five years if all options are exercised.

The awards by the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific, San Diego, call for the quartet to examine the science, architecture, engineering, functionality, interface and interoperability of cyberspace systems at the tactical, operational and strategic levels, according to a Defense Department announcement.

They also will provide software design and implementation as well as systems integration, test and evaluation and demonstration.
General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems Inc.’s contract is worth $78.4 million.

Science Applications International Corp.’s award is worth $84.5 million. Northrop Grumman Corp.’s contract is worth $77.5 million and Booz Allen Hamilton Inc.’s award is valued at $71.6 million.

In addition, 39 other defense contractors, commercial providers and academic partners will act as subcontractors. The majority of the work will be done in San Diego and San Antonio, Texas.

General Dynamics Corp., of Falls Church, Va., ranks No. 6 on Washington Technology’s 2010 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors. SAIC, of McLean, Va., ranks No. 5; Northrop Grumman Corp., of Los Angeles, ranks No. 2, and Booz Allen Hamilton, of McLean, Va., ranks No. 10.
