Acquisition Solutions wins Justice job

The Justice Department selected Acquisition Solutions Inc. to provide acquisition support for the department's wireless communications initiative.

Oakton, Va.-based Acquisition Solutions won a contract earlier this month to provide market research to help craft an acquisition strategy and develop the contract management strategy for the Integrated Wireless Network, Justice officials announced yesterday.

The wireless network, a joint initiative between the Justice, Homeland Security and Treasury departments, will be a consolidated nationwide wireless service for voice, data and multimedia communications. IWN will allow for interoperability between state, local and federal law enforcement and homeland security organizations.

A Justice Department spokesman declined to provide an amount for the contract, but said it was a performance-based deal. The entire IWN project is expected to cost about $2.7 billion over seven to 10 years, a cost that will be split between Justice and DHS, the spokesman said. Officials also plan to have a vendor day next month to provide companies with an overview of the project and potential opportunities.
