DHS gears up for recompete of $1.1B network contract

The Department of Homeland Security is gearing up for the recompete of a $1.1 billion contract to support its secure data networks.

The contract will be competed as a task order under the GSA Alliant current contract. The incumbent is Northrop Grumman, which won the work in 2011, according to Deltek.

DHS is planning an industry day for Aug. 30 at GSA headquarters at 1800 F St. NW, Washington, D.C.

The contract goes by the acronym SENS3 for Security Enterprise Network Systems, Services and Support. Northrop’s contract is known as ENSS or Enterprise Networked Services Support.

The solicitation number for the new contract is GSC-QF0B-17-33067.

The contract will support the Homeland Secure Data Network (HSDN) and the Classified Local Area Network (C-LAN). The networks are used for information sharing across DHS, other federal agencies and first responders at the state, local and tribal levels.

While the competition will be restricted to holders of the Alliant contract, DHS in its FBO.gov notice encouraged others contractors, particularly small businesses, to attend the industry day to learn about the opportunity and look for subcontracting opportunities.

Those interested should email SENS3FEDSIM@gsa.gov by the close of business Aug. 24 to register.

Here is a link to the FBO notice.
