Core disciplines required for the contract include business area support and project management, cyberspace operations, cyberspace planning, all-source intelligence, capability management and development, cyberspace training and exercises, information technology/communications, strategic policy/doctrine development and campaign assessments, engagement activities, and security.
The period of performance for the contract, including all task orders, is May 20, 2016 – May 19, 2021.
Seed Task Order (TO) 1 is awarded to Vencore for cyberspace operations support services to USCYBERCOM. The total estimated value of TO 1 is $89 million with a period of performance from June 1, 2016–May 31, 2017. This task order also includes up to four one-year option periods.
