State Department awards $388M visa support contract
The State Department has awarded a potential five-year, $388.9 million contract to LDRM for professional services in support of efforts to digitize activities for processing visas, according to a Friday FedBizOpps award notice.
LDRM will help manage the department’s National Visa Center in Portsmouth, New Hampshire and Kentucky Consular Center in Williamsburg, Kentucky that all provide back-office processing to support visa adjudication worldwide.
Herndon, Virginia-based LDRM will also work with the department to update processes, operate model constructs and procedures at both hubs.
The department awarded the contract as a small business-set aside and work will take place over one base year, followed by up to four individual option years.
FCi Federal is the incumbent and won the contract in 2013 with a $234 million ceiling value. That was also a small business set-aside contract, according to Deltek data.
PAE acquired FCi two years ago and thus inherited the contract that expires June 30, 2020.
