DISA opens competition for $902m Communications Capacity Services Contract

The Defense Information Systems Agency released its request for proposals for its 10-year, $902 million Communications Capacity Services Contract (CSC II), a single-award task order contract.

DISA will use the contract to get reliable, responsive, and cost-effective communications infrastructure services.

The winning contractor will provide defense customers with communications capacity services which will include hardware and software equipment, including routers, switches, appliances, monitoring equipment, monitoring and reporting software and other supporting devices.

The incumbent contract is with Knight Point Systems and they’ve pulled in $182.9 million in task orders since winning the contract in 2011, according to Deltek.

The old contract was competed only among service-disabled, veteran-owned companies. Three companies bid on the contract.

The new contract is being competed as full-and-open, according to Deltek.

For all communications capacity requirements, the company will buy and provide the necessary hardware, hardware maintenance, communications operating software and service to support the communication infrastructure associated with the capacity service. The contractor will also have cabinets, racks and cabling as supply items, owned by DISA.

DISA will make a single award for the IDIQ.

DISA released the RFP Aug. 2. Responses are due by Sept. 1.
