Army releases draft RFP for $37B IDIQ

The Army released a draft solicitation for its $37 billion, 10-year indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract for Responsive Strategic Sourcing for Services (RS3).

Officials want to provide the Army and other defense agencies with knowledge-based support services for needs related to Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR).

Deltek estimates the value of the contract at $37 billion.

The scope of the RS3 work is expected to include engineering, such as cloud computing and data analytics, research, test and evaluations, such as hardware and software development and knowledge management, acquisition and strategic planning, such as contract planning, budget analysis, and strategic planning. Officials expect work to include logistics, education, and training.

As it stands currently, the Army will award spots on the IDIQ to about 50 companies, with 20 being small businesses. The numbers may change as the Army continues the procurement process, according to the draft solicitation.

The Army will accept responses through Feb. 27.
