Contract vehicles worth $13 billion combined for information technology services at the departments of Defense, Commerce and State are upcoming in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, the Washington Post reported Sunday.
Ashley Bergander, a research manager at Deltek, writes that DoD plans to hold an industry day early next month to brief contractors about a competition for IT support work on the military health system.
Incumbent contracts under the existing Defense Systems Integration, Design, Development, Operations & Maintenance Support program have an $8 billion ceiling value over 10 years.
Deltek forecasts that the upcoming D/SIDDOMS IV vehicle will have a similar or greater contract value.
The Commerce Department is looking for vendors to support the agency’s enterprise satellite, ocean and meteorological programs, according to the Post.
DOC’s $3 billion Professional and Technical Support Services Contract Vehicle includes a portion reserved for smaller contractors, Bergander writes.
Bergander reports the solicitation for the second-generation Hybrid Information Technology Services for State will likely commence in August.
The State awarded $2 billion to contractors in the previous HITSS vehicle and Deltek expects the State to award multiple blanket agreements to small and disadvantaged firms for the HITSS II program, according to Bergander.
