DHS awards engineering and technical assistance contracts

Four contractors to compete for $389M in task orders

Four contractors will compete for $389 million in task orders over five years to support the Homeland Security Department’s Office of Cybersecurity and Communication.

Booz Allen Hamilton Inc., General Dynamics Corp., Science Applications International Corp. and SRA International were picked to compete against one another for tasks to enhance and maintain the National Communications System, according to a July 10 award notice on the Federal Business Opportunities Web site.

Under the contracts, the companies will provide scientific, engineering and technical assistance. The scope of work also includes project planning and program management support.

NCS is the cornerstone of the country’s ability to provide key communications services to support government functions during emergencies. The system comprises the Government Emergency Telecommunications Service and Wireless Priority Service, which give authorized users top priority on congested networks during national emergencies.

Each of the four contractors is listed in Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
