The Air Force released today the solicitation for the Air and Space Operations Center Weapon System Integrator contract.

Vendors must submit proposals by Oct. 11. The service did not announce an award date or a dollar amount for the contract on its Web site.

Vendors value the multi-year deal at more than $2 billion. The Air Force wants to hire a company to manage and update the service’s 17 air and space operations worldwide, including the information technology in it; a training facility at Hurlburt Air Force Base in Florida; and a help-desk site at Langley Air Force Base in Virginia.

The service planned to issue the solicitation earlier this year. But the Defense Department reviewed the acquisition and funding strategy and changed the designation of the contract to recognize the centers, where service commanders plan military air campaigns, as a weapon system called the AN/USQ-163 Falconer.
