GDIT, SAIC vie for $128M in Navy tasks

General Dynamics Information Technology and Science Applications International will compete for Navy task orders for technology support under two three-year contracts that have a cumulative value of $128 million, according to a Feb. 14 Defense Department announcment.

GDIT’s indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract could be worth as much as $68.1 million.

SAIC’s three-year IDIQ, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract could be worth as $59.8 million.

The awards call for technology insertion, software and systems engineering support.

They also cover modeling and simulation, testing, and integrated logistics in support of communications, information technology, and other command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence (C4I) efforts.

Work will be performed in San Diego, Calif. (85 percent), and Fairfax, Va. (15 percent), and is expected to be completed Feb. 13, 2015.

This contract was competitively procured via a request for proposal published on the Federal Business Opportunities website, and the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center e-Commerce Central website, with two offers received. Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific is the contracting activity.

General Dynamics Corp., of Falls Church, Va., ranks No. 5 on Washington Technology’s 2011 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors. SAIC, of McLean, Va., ranks No. 6.

How unusual is it to get just two bids and two winners for such a large contract?

How is it that only 2 offers were received on this???? Where are the small business set asides? The work goes to the usual suspects, the top 10 on WT top 100.
