The Space and Naval Warfare (SPAWAR) Systems Center Atlantic awarded nine companies a total of $898 million in multiple award five-year service contracts to be executed in task orders for cyber mission engineering services that help deliver information warfare capabilities through various domains.
The winners of the Nov. 30 award include Grove Resource Solutions Inc., Millennium Corp., SimVentions Inc., BAE Systems, Booz Allen Hamilton [BAH], CACI International Inc. [CACI], General Dynamics Information Technology [GD], Leidos [LDOS], Northrop Grumman [NOC], and Scientific Research Corp.
This is an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity performance-based service contract using cost-plus-fixed-fee and firm-fixed-price task orders. The contract announcement specifically cited the recognized operational domains of sea, air, land, space, electromagnetic, and cyber and also noted this contract covers the full range of military operations and levels of war.
A SPAWAR Systems Center Atlantic official told Defense Daily this award provides the full range of battlespace awareness technical, engineering, and systems acquisition requirements support. This includes systems engineering development, design, integration, procurement, fabrication, configuration, installation, integration, logistics, cybersecurity, maintenance and life cycle support services supported by SPAWAR Systems Center Atlantic.
The more specific scope requirements will be determined at the individual task order level. The official said individual task order values will be determined by competition on their individual requirements.
The five-year ordering period includes one 24-month option period and one six-month option-to-extend services. If all the options are exercised, the total value of the contracts is expected to reach $962 million.
Work will occur globally and is expected to finish by November 2024 or if all options are exercised and continue through May 2027. The Navy is obligating $25,000 in working capital funds, divided evenly among the awardees, at award time. The contract’s funds do not expire at the end of this fiscal year.
The Navy underscored the multiple award contracts went through a full and open competition with reserves for small business, with 25 offers ultimately received.
