Six contractors have won the right to compete for $900 million worth of advisory and assistance tasks with the U.S. Strategic Command, the Defense Department announced July 25.
The winners of the Air Force indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract are:
- Booz Allen Hamilton Inc.
- CACI International Inc.
- Client/Server Software Solutions Inc.
- ITT Corp.
- MacAulay Brown Inc.
- Science Applications International Corp.
The Strategic Command plans to issue tasks through the program that will require the contractors to deliver a broad range of services that will include opinions, analyses, evaluations and recommendations for programs and strategies, DOD said. The contract also covers training and engineering services.
The Strategic Command is responsible for managing the U.S. nuclear weapons arsenal and providing intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance information to the secretary of defense. Its other responsibilities include global command and control, military space operations and weapons of mass destruction deterrence.
The one-year contracts have four option years. The 55th Contracting Squadron at Offutt Air Force Base, Neb., will oversee the work.
