Awardees include:

  • Global Technology Resource Inc.

  • World Wide Technology Inc.

The Navy received 18 offers through the full and open competition via the Federal Business Opportunities and the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center e-Commerce Central websites.

The Pentagon expects work to finish by March 2013.

Work could continue to March 2017 if all options are exercised.

SPAWAR Atlantic in Charleston is the contracting activity.

Three of the four awardees also won contracts to provide the Navy equipment for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance applications.

All contracts for that equipment are potentially worth $500 million to all awardees.
