Yesterday, American Systems announced that it has been awarded a contract from the Department of the Army’s Defense Forensic Enterprise System (DFES) that could be worth potentially $145 million. The contract calls for American Systems to provide forensic services, as well as offer research, technical, operational and analytical services for the four principal organizations within the Army: the Office of the Provost Marshal General (OPMG), United States Army Military Police School (USAMPS), the Criminal Investigation Division Command (CIDC), and the United States Army Criminal Investigation Laboratory (USACIL).
The work will support DFES’s goal to more centrally manage, integrate and coordinate forensic science activities across the Services for criminal investigation and warfighter operations, as well as to serve homeland security functions.
“Our team’s extensive background in forensic science, coupled with American Systems’ 30-plus years of experience in the government IT space, provides us with a clear value proposition to support the Department of Defense’s needs for the critical work, ” said company president William C. Hoover. “We are proud to be a part of this global effort to coordinate forensic intelligence operations across the full spectrum of military operations, including supporting legal, medical, intelligence and warfighting functions.”
American Systems will compete for task orders to support the forensic disciplines of nuclear DNA, serology, forensic anthropology, digital evidence, forensic toxicology and forensic pathology, among others.
The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a 12-month base period and four 12-month option periods.
