FGM Inc., Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. and Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC), have won Navy Net-Enabled Command Capability (NECC) contracts worth a combined total of $172.3 million.
All three will compete for indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) task orders to provide systems engineering support to the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) during the two-year contract period, which includes a single three-year option, according to a Defense Department announcement made July 1.
The NECC provides seamless integration of information for the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, combatant commanders and the military services.
The NECC ensures synchronized joint and multinational operations, as well as joint Command, Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence to support the entire force projection cycle. Support services include technical operations, integrated logistics, test and evaluation, training, modeling and simulation, security engineering, and other related systems engineering support.
FGM, of Reston, Va., will compete for task orders under the IDIQ, cost-plus, fixed-fee NECC contract with a potential value of $21.4 million. If exercised, the three-year option period would bring the potential, cumulative value of the contract to $60.2 million.
Booz Allen Hamilton, of McLean, Va., was awarded a potential $20.4 million IDIQ, cost-plus, fixed-fee contract. This two-year contract also includes one three-year option period which, if exercised, would bring the potential, cumulative value of the contract to $56.7 million.
SAIC, of San Diego, was awarded a two-year IDIQ contract worth $20.1 million. The additional three-year option, if exercised, would bring the potential, cumulative value to $55.4 million.
The work will be performed at DISA locations in the Washington, D.C., area, and is expected to be completed June 30, 2011.
The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific is the contracting activity.
SAIC ranks No. 7 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors. Booz Allen ranks No. 10 on the list.
