Eight companies have won small business set-aside positions on a potential nine-year, $450 million contract to provide training support services for the U.S. Air Force in an effort to help the U.S. and partner agencies counter national security threats.
The service branch awarded the multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract through a competitive procurement with 25 bids received, the Defense Department said Wednesday.
The contract covers the provision of training equipment, instruction and related materials and calls for contractors to help U.S. and partner institutions detect and prevent threats linked to piracy, narcotics, transnational organized crime, threat finance networks and trafficking.
Contract work is expected to run through Feb. 8, 2025, according to DoD.
The awardees are:
- Defense Technology Inc.
- Downrange Operations and Training
- K&S Tactical
- Panthera Solutions
- Prosol Associates
- Resicum International
- VxL Enterprises
Earlier this month, the military branch also awarded 15 firms a potential nine-year, $975 million contract to provide logistics support against national security threats.
