Army opens $7.2B intell contract for business
Last week, I reported that the final protest hurdle at been cleared for the Army’s Global Intelligence Support Services contract. Mission Essential Personnel lost their protest in front of the Government Accountability Office.
So, it was clear Mission Essential Personnel was eliminated, but there were several other protests by other companies. Some of those went through the process at GAO and were denied, but a handful were dismissed. Which were on the contract and which weren't? That was the question I posed to the Army.
It took a couple days, but I heard back from the Army. Both the small business and full and open portions of the contract have had stays lifted, so the competition is ready to begin.
Leidos and TASC (now part of Engility) were added to the full and open or unrestricted portion of the contract, which has a ceiling of $7.2 billion.
IOMAXIS was added to the contract small business or restricted portion, which has a $2.16 billion ceiling. The company's protest was dismissed when the Army agreed to re-evaluate bids.
Not making the cut was GIS Federal, which had also protested and had its bid re-evaluated. It eventually lost the competition, but did not protest again.
Now, there are 13 winners in the full and open portion and 11 in the small business portion. When the contract was originally awarded in September, there were 11 full-and-open and 10 small.
The companies will now compete for task orders to provide the Army Intelligence and Security Command services in four main areas: intelligence and security operations, information operations, mission support for facilities and sustainment services such as program management.
