Major Contract Wins

This week we’re recapping significant contract wins, including:

  • U.S. Navy awards three companies a $550.8M award.

  • U.S. Navy selects Accenture Federal Services, Booz Allen Hamilton for a $980M contract.

  • DIA awards Parsons a $164.7M contract.

  • U.S. Navy awards BAE Systems a $175M win.

  • U.S. Navy selects Lockheed Martin for a $194.3M contract.

  • U.S. Navy to consolidate 15 awards into a $12.6B contract vehicle.

The U.S. Navy has awarded three companies spots on a potential five-year, $550.8 million blanket purchase agreement to supply McAfee-branded hardware, software and services. DLT Solutions, EC America and International Systems Marketing are eligible to vie for task orders to supply the offerings to the Defense Department, U.S. Coast Guard and intelligence community, the DoD said Wednesday.

The U.S. Navy has selected Accenture Federal Services  and Booz Allen Hamilton as additional awardees on a potential five-year, $980 million contract to support the Department of the Navy‘s Financial Improvement and Audit Readiness program. Eight offers were submitted to the Naval Supply Systems Command Fleet Logistics Center’s Contracting Department for the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract with a $153.8 million initial value, the Defense Department said Tuesday.

Parsons has won a potential 10-year, $164.7 million contract to support various functions at the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Missile and Space Intelligence Center in Huntsville, Ala. The Defense Department said Tuesday that Parson’s government services business will help MSIC manage analytical tools for modeling and simulation architecture, as well as development and integration models.

BAE Systems has secured a $175 million order from the U.S. Navy to produce more than 7,000 laser-guided rockets designed to engage targets and minimize potential collateral damage. The order falls under a potential $600 Navy million contracting vehicle for the supply of Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System rockets to the U.S. military and allied nations, BAE Systems said Tuesday.

Lockheed Martin has received a potential $194.3 million contract to provide consoles and cabinets for the machinery control system of the U.S. Navy‘s Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyers. DDG 51 MCS is designed to monitor and manage the ship’s auxiliary, damage control, electrical and propulsion systems, the Defense Department said Tuesday.

The U.S. Navy looks to consolidate as many as 15 contracts for aircraft maintenance and logistics support services into a potential seven-year, $12.6 billion contract vehicle, Bloomberg Government reported Monday. A pre-solicitation conference on the Contracted Maintenance, Modification, Aircrew and Related Services program is scheduled to take place in California, Md., from May 15 to 17.

NOTE: Last week’s Round-Up mistakenly reported that Peraton had purchased SGI in the bullet points section. The company they purchased is SRI, Strategic Resources International. At Executive Mosaic we take accuracy very seriously and apologize for the error.
