Army adds three to electronic security systems contract

The Army has added three companies to a five-year, $270 million contract for new electronic security systems after the Government Accountability Office dismissed all of their protests.

Indyne, Spectrum Solutions Inc. and Williams Electric Co. were announced as additions to the contract by the Defense Department Friday, nearly three months after the initial round of awards to 12 other companies.

GAO received their protests in early May and dismissed them on June 13, according to Deltek data.

The AEC Electronic Security Systems VI contract was bogged down with nine pre-award protests last year and all were subsequently dismissed by GAO after the Army took corrective action.

AEC VI has a ceiling value of $450 million if all options are exercised with $210 million of that set aside for competition among small business awardees only and the remaining $240 million.

Of the three new AEC VI awardees, Spectrum Solutions is a small business while Indyne and Williams Electric were chosen for the contract's full-and-open portion

AEC VI's original 12 selections were divided evenly between large and small businesses. The Army received 34 bids for the contract.

Large business winners then were KBRwyle Technology Solutions, Johnson Controls Building Automation Systems, M.C. Dean, Leidos, Secure Mission Solutions and Xator Corp.

Small business winners then were Atlantic CommTech, Evergreen Fire and Security, Infotec Systems, Integrated Security Solutions, Low Voltage Wiring Ltd. and Signet Technologies.
