Three contractors have won a $67.2 million blanket purchase agreement with the Commerce Department to support the First Responder Network Authority, or FirstNet, a nationwide network for emergency responders.
The winners are:

The BPA was awarded under the GSA’s MOBIS as a set aside for service-disabled, veteran-owned small businesses.
FirstNet is the first nationwide, high-speed network dedicated to public safety, and will increase collaboration to help emergency responders, according to the National Telecommunications & Information Administration website.
Under the contract, the companies will provide professional, technical and subject matter expert support services, Redhorse Corp. said in a release.
The companies will compete for task orders under the contract. Work will be performed in San Ramon, Calif., Boulder, Colo., Dallas, Texas, and Washington, D.C., and is expected to be completed by October 2015.
