The Navy has awarded nine companies contracts for cyberspace operations support services with the deals potentially totalling $6.2 billion through 2026, the Pentagon announced Wednesday evening.
BAE Systems, Booz Allen Hamilton [BAH], ICF [ICFI], Leidos [LDOS], Northrop Grumman [NOC], Parsons [PSN], Perspecta [PRSP], Science Applications International Corp. [SAIC] and Scientific Research Corp. each received a deal to compete for task orders to provide technology assessment, capability development and training support.
Navy, Space and Naval Warfare (SPAWAR) Systems Center Pacific (SSC Pacific) leads the program which is follow-on work for a current set of contracts set to end in September 2021.
“SSC Pacific requires advice, assistance, coordination and products necessary to support operational planning, assessment, integration, execution and technology development to assure superiority for the warfighter in the cyberspace domain,” officials wrote in the solicitation notice released in May 2018.
Raytheon [RTN], an incumbent on the current contract which began in September 2016, was not selected for the follow-on work. Eighteen companies submitted bids for the new contract, according to the Pentagon.
The new set of indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity awards begin with a three-year base contract followed by two two-year option period, with work to be performed through May 2026 if all options are exercised.
The base awards for each company include $276.6 million for BAE Systems, $273.9 million for Booz Allen Hamilton, $330.7 million for ICF, $304.3 million for Leidos, $273.2 million for Northrop Grumman, $293.8 million for Parsons, $303.5 million for Perspecta, $234.7 million for SAIC and $240.3 million for Scientific Research Corp.
Total ceiling values under the awards include $677.8 million for BAE Systems, $672 million for Booz Allen Hamilton, $802 million for ICF, $741.3 million for Leidos, $673.2 million for Northrop Grumman, $711 million for Parsons, $739.9 million for Perspecta, $569.2 million for SAIC and $577.9 million for Scientific Research Corp.
No funds were obligated at the time of the award, according to the Pentagon.
The SSC Pacific contract also includes a small business set of awards that is expected to be awarded in late 2019.
Current small business contractors working on the deal, which will end in March 2022, are Avanti Technologies, Millennium Corporation, Sentar Inc. and Vector Planning & Services.
