We’re rapidly approaching the middle of FY 2017, and amidst all of the news surrounding President Trump’s FY 2018 budget plan, the border wall, and attempts at healthcare reforms, it is easy to lose track of what’s going on in the GovCon industry. This week, we’re going to take a look at the top five federal business opportunities and the ten largest awardees for this fiscal year. Perhaps your company, or a partner company, is currently competing for one of these contracts or appears on the list of top ten U.S. awardees.
The Top Ten Largest Awardees in the United States – FY 2017
According to the latest data from the U.S. Government, the top ten largest contract awardees in FY 2017 so far are:
The Top Five Unrestricted Federal Business Opportunities for FY 2017
Back at the beginning of FY 2017, Deltek released a report on the “Top 20 Unrestricted Federal Business Opportunities for FY 2017,” wherein the total value of the top 20 federal opportunities for FY 2017 was found to be approximately $344 billion. Deltek noted that this represents the highest value of the past twelve fiscal years and was a continuation of an upward trend since FY 2013.
The number one opportunity listed by Deltek is the U.S. Army’s Logistics Civil Augmentation Program V or LOGCAP V, which is estimated to have a $150 billion value. The primary objective of the LOGCAP V program is to “provide Combat Support and Combat Service Support (CS/CSS) to Combatant Commanders (COCOM) and Army Service Component Commanders (ASCC) during contingency operations.” The support detailed by the LOGCAP V contract will be provided throughout the full range of military operations, as dictated by the Army.
The Department of Veterans Affairs’ Community Care Network (CCN) is listed as the second largest opportunity, with an estimated value of $64 billion. The CCN contract will “consist of licensed healthcare providers as well as healthcare practitioners to provide medical, surgical, complementary and integrative services, durable medical equipment, pharmacy and dental services.” It is an 8-year contract (5-year base with a 3-year option,) that will be awarded to 2-5 companies.
The Information Analysis Centers Multiple Award Contract (IAC MAC) awarded by the Department of Defense is estimated to have a $28 billion value. The IAC MAC will be a multiple award, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) task order to support DoD Research and Development. IAC MAC is a recompete of three existing contracts: Homeland Defense TAT, Defense Systems TAT, and Cyber Security TAT. It is anticipated to be a 10-year contract with 3 award pools and 18 contract awards.
The U.S. Air Force’s Advanced Pilot Training Family of Systems Program (APT T-X) is the fourth largest opportunity listed by Deltek and is estimated to have a value of $16.3 billion. The Advanced Pilot Training (APT) program is going to replace the T-38C, which is currently being used in various Air Force training programs. The APT T-X will teach student pilots foundational flight skills and core competencies necessary for transitioning to current generation fighter and bomber aircrafts. The Contract Type is Firm Fixed Price, Fixed Price Incentive, IDIQ, time and materials, and will be a single award, 16-year contract.
The fifth largest opportunity is the GSA’s AEC Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative Building Maintenance and Operations Zones 2 Through 6 (BMO SB) (FSSI). The Building Maintenance and Operations (BMO) strategic sourcing solution is meant to cover all high priority BMO services in a comprehensive and flexible manner. The GSA seeks to create a Multiple Award IDIQ, Firm Fixed Price (FFP), Time and Materials (T&M), and Labor Hour, with ten awards planned (eight for Operation and Maintenance Service and two for Facility Support Service). The opportunity’s value is estimated to be $15 billion.
