Seven capture $871M DISA prize

Seven companies won spots on the Defense Information Systems Agency test and evaluation contract worth more than $871 million.

The companies will compete for task orders to provide services for testing, scientific, engineering, logistics, administrative, purchasing and ancillary support.

The seven companies are:

  • Alion Science and Technology Corp.
  • American Systems Corp.
  • CGI Group
  • Lockheed Martin
  • ManTech International
  • Science Applications International Corp.
  • TASC Inc.

CGI’s win came through Oberon Associates, which was acquired by Stanley Associates, which in turn was acquired by CGI.

The services under the contract will include operation and maintenance of test tools, labs, networks, infrastructure and administration.

Each company is guaranteed $100,000. The contract has a one-year base and four one-year options. There is a phase-in period from July 30 to Oct. 28. The first year of the contract then begins on Oct. 29.

Work will take place at Fort Huachuca, Ariz., and Indian Head and Forte Meade, Md.

DISA received seven proposals for the contract.

"Each company is guaranteed $100,000." Is that correct? Seems paltry compared to the contract value. Should it read, "Each company is guaranteed $100M."
