ICE prepares for $500M deal

Immigration and Customs Enforcement

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials intend to seek bids on an information technology and telecommunications support services contract that could be worth up to $500 million.

According to a Jan. 13 presolicitation notice on the FedBizOpps Web site, IT services would include help-desk operations, network management and operations, hardware maintenance, asset management, IT infrastructure deployment, local-area network administration and desktop computer support, IT cabling, and security management operations.

Northrop Grumman currently provides these services to ICE through the Technology Enterprise Automation Management Support contract.

The notice indicated that other Homeland Security Department agencies and programs, including the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services bureau, the Customs and Border Protection agency, the U.S. Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology program and the department's headquarters, could also participate in this contract.

Depending on participation by other agencies, the estimated value of the contract is between $225 million and $500 million. ICE officials intend to award a one-year base contract with four one-year options.
