Air Force adds 15 more vendors to services program

The Air Force this week awarded blanket purchase agreements to 15 additional vendors under a $750 million information technology services program, bringing the total number of large and small businesses involved in the program to 81.

The latest round of BPAs is part of the three-year Information Technology Services Program (ITSP), which will serve as the source of IT services for the Electronic Systems Center (ESC) at Hanscom Air Force Base, Mass., and four other Air Force bases. ESC plans to announce a fourth and final round of awards shortly after Feb. 12, the date ESC has set for the close of proposal submissions. "Our goal is to announce additional BPA awards as soon as possible after the submission window has closed," said Steve Linchey, ITSP contracting officer.

The BPAs are being awarded under the General Services Administration schedule as part of an Air Force effort to streamline and shorten the acquisition cycle. The Air Force awarded the first 39 BPAs in December and another 27 in January.

Confirmed primes for this latest round are:

Applied Sciences Corp.

Comarco Systems Inc.

Excel Management Systems Inc.

The Greentree Group

High Performance Technologies Inc.

HJ Ford Associates Inc.

KPMG Peat Marwick LLP

Labblee Corp.

Lockheed Martin Services Inc.

ESC said it would award contracts to three other vendors once they submit the necessary administrative data or Web site information. The three vendors are NCI Information Systems, Inc., Science & Engineering Associates Inc. and Sparta Inc.
