This task order contract is cost-plus-fixed-fee and performance-based, including provisions for fixed-price-incentive and firm-fixed-price orders.
Work entails command, control, communications, computers, combat systems, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance electronics and communications services and solutions; these services will specifically be put toward mission capabilities in the transport and computing infrastructure portfolio.
Services are meant to provide the full system life cycle support—including research, development, test, evaluation, production and fielding—of sustainable, secure, survivable and interoperable command and control, information operations, enterprise information services and space capabilities, according to a Defense Department announcement.
$10,000 in funding was obligated at time of the award. If options are exercised, it will bring the contract ceiling up to $98.7 million, while also extending the work into November 2017.
Ten offers were received for this contract. Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic, Charleston, S.C., is the contracting activity.
