Air Force adds 10 more companies to NetCents 2 contract

The Air Force has made another set of awards under its troubled $960 million NetCents 2 Applications Services contract.

The ten newcomers are:

  • Accenture Federal Services
  • BAE Systems
  • Booz Allen Hamilton
  • Computer Sciences Corp.
  • Dynamics Research Corp.
  • Harris IT Services
  • HP Enterprise Services
  • ManTech Systems Engineering Corp.
  • Vencore
  • Leidos

Four of these ten companies – Booz Allen, CSC, HP and Harris – protested the Air Force’s original awards. The Government Accountability Office ruled in their favor and recommended that the Air Force review its bids and make new source selection decisions.

A few weeks later, GAO released its decision sustaining the four companies’ protests. In its decision, GAO pointed to mistakes that the Air Force made in the areas of cost realism analysis, technical evaluations, past performance evaluations and trade-off decisions in the best-value award criteria.

The ten companies originally named to the contract were:

  • Lockheed Martin
  • Jacobs Technology
  • SRA International
  • L-3 National Security Solutions
  • Raytheon
  • InfoReliance Corp.
  • CACI International
  • Northrop Grumman
  • General Dynamics
  • IBM Corp.

This brings the total number of companies awarded spots on the NetCents 2 contract to 20.
