12 small firms to vie for $960M in AF contracts

The NetCents 2 Small Business Companion contract is the first of two Application Services contracts that will be available to the Air Force.

The Air Force has awarded $960 million in contracts to 12 small businesses that will make it quicker and easier for warfighters to obtain innovative IT services and capabilities covering the full spectrum of operations and missions, the service said.

The Air Force's Network Centric Solutions-2 team awarded its Application Services Small Business Companion contract June 21.

It’s the first of two application services contracts that will be available for use by the Air Force.

The second, a full and open competition, is still in source selection.

The small business contracts have a three-year base ordering period and four 12-month options and are expected to be available in August.

The indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contracts were awarded to the following small businesses:
ActioNet, Inc., of Vienna, Va.;
