The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has awarded positions on a potential five-year, $118 million contract to three companies for information technology services.
AEEC, eGlobal Tech and Octo Consulting will compete for task orders to perform the work on a labor hour basis, the agency said in a March 24 FedBizOpps notice.
PTO awarded the contract as a small business set-aside and will award up toÂ 139, 400 hours for the initial base year, with up toÂ 139, 400 hours for each of the four one-year option periods, a presolicitation notice says.
The agency is also holding a full-and-open competition for the IDEAI-2 program (Infrastructure, Design, Engineering, Architecture, and Integration).

PTO lists areas of contract work as including:
- system design
- infrastructure engineering
- network engineering
