DLA plans small-biz tech support contract

The Defense Logistics Agency plans to award several small-business contracts for telecommunication and network infrastructure upgrades.

In a new presolicitation notice, DLA intends to award a total small business, multiple-award task order contract for technical IT services. DLA did not give a date as to when they might release a formal solicitation.

DLA wants a secure network that is compatible among all the agency’s activities and sites. The IDIQ’s task orders will include conducting market research and complete procurement packages to purchase electronic components, upgrading and installing existing network infrastructure at various locations, and providing engineering support services.

DLA’s network backbones are its Enterprise Telecommunication Network and SIPRNet over Enterprise Telecommunications Network (SoETN). Those networks provide wide area and local area network connectivity between DLA’s headquarters and its field sites, depots and forward-deployed locations across the United States.

DLA released the presolicitation notice June 26. Responses are open until July 12.
