Army awards $19B multiple-award contract

The Army has awarded a wide-ranging multiple-award contract vehicle to seven companies that will vie for task orders worth up to $19.25 billion over the life of the contract.

The Army’s Communications-Electronics Lifecycle Management Command chose four large companies and three small businesses for the contract, called Strategic Services Sourcing.

The large business primes are Booz Allen Hamilton, CACI International, Computer Sciences Corp., and Lockheed Martin Integrated Systems. The small companies are Sensor Technologies, USfalcon, and Viatech.

The program calls for services and equipment in areas including engineering, business operations and logistics, according to the Army. The Strategic Services Sourcing program aims to support command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems.

Paul Cofoni, president of U.S. Operations at CACI, said the Strategic Services Sourcing win is the largest contract award ever for the company. He said the highly sought-after program attracted 30 competitors.

J. Keith Kellogg, executive vice president with CACI’s Mission Systems Business Group, said the program’s scope encompasses such areas as countermine technology, advanced optics for night vision, and unmanned aerial vehicle network integration. He said work under the program will have direct applicability to the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Army program consolidates five contracts into one vehicle, according to Booz Allen. The company said in a statement that it has more than 40 subcontractors on its team for the contract.

Lockheed Martin said its team includes 12 large businesses, 25 small businesses and the Tobyhanna Army Depot.
