Small businesses get $12.2B contract

The Defense Information Systems Agency has awarded a five-year, $12.2 billion information technology support contract to 12 small businesses.

DISA announced the awards April 24 as part of Encore II, a multiple-award indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract for global network-centric services. The Defense Department’s network-centric approach seeks to improve situational awareness by enhancing how the military services share information.

The winning companies are 3H Technology’s Federal Group, AnviCom, Analytical Services, Computing Technologies, Data Systems Analysts, FemmeComp, NetConn Solutions, Oberon Associates, Pragmatics, Professional Software Engineering, Solers and TranTech.

The contract runs for five years with five option years, and the companies can start work as early as June 1, the announcement states.

The Encore program offers the military and defense agencies network engineering services, analytical support for buying and installing IT systems, and a way to buy various products, including hardware. The program supports command and control, intelligence and mission-support areas, and the Global Information Grid, according to the announcement.
