Marines plan industry day for systems integrator contract

Contract will reduce need for SIs

The Marine Corps Systems Command is planning an industry day on Oct. 15 for the Total Force Information Technology Systems Integrator, or TFITS, contract.

TFITS’s objective is to continue providing IT systems to the Marine Corps in a constrained budget environment. The contract is meant to reduce the number of systems integrators that work on IT systems.

It calls for a single vendor to provide systems integrator services, as opposed to the multiple vendors that currently provide the Marine Corps with these services.

Having a single vendor will eliminate redundancy, improve utilization of vendor resources, standardize business processes, improve process and product quality and reduce Marine Corps system ownership costs, according to FedBizOpps.

The industry day will be held at the Gen. Alfred Gray Research Center Auditorium, Marine Corps Base Quantico, 2040 Broadway Street, Quantico, VA 22134, from 12:30pm to 4:30pm EST.

Kathy L. Storaker is the primary point of contact. She can be reached by e-mail at kathy.storaker@usmc.mil, or by phone at (703)-784-6553.
