Air Force names 9 winners on $6.9B NetCents II contract

Nine companies have won the products portion of the Air Force’s NetCents II contract, worth $6.9 billion.

They will compete for task orders under the giant contract.

Commercial products to be sold through the contract include networking equipment, servers and storage, peripherals, multimedia, software, and identity management/biometric hardware and associated software.

The NetCents program supports the Global Information Grid architecture, the Defense Information Infrastructure, the Air Force, and the Defense Communications Systems' info-structure for computer networks and telecommunications network mission areas, according to the Defense Department announcement.

The contract runs through July 2022.

The winners are:
Ace Technology Partners LLC, Arlington Heights, Ill.
Blue Tech Inc., San Diego
FedStore Corp., Rockville, Md.
General Dynamics IT
Global Technology Resources Inc., Denver
GTSI Corp., Herndon, Va.
Iron Bow Technologies LLC, Chantilly, Va.
M2 Technology Inc. San Antonio
Red River Computer Co., Claremont, N.H.

Other portions of the NetCents II program include full-and-open and small business contracts for infrastructure and services.

Overall the procurement vehicle has a $24.2 billion ceiling, according to Deltek.

The Air Force recently raised the ceiling for NetCents I so that the old contract and the new one would have enough overlap to continue IT operations funded through the contract.

Interesting that Iron Bow and GTSI won, but World Wide (WWT) and CDW-G did not. Surprised Nick didn't mention that, since in a marketplace where a few companies dominate and perpetually win the product IDIQs, it is big news when two of the largest are left at the altar.
