Jacobs Wins $110M SOCOM Enterprise Operations, Maintenance Support IDIQ

Jacobs Engineering Group’s (NYSE: JEC) technology business has won a potential five-year, $110 million contract from the U.S. Special Operations Command to provide enterprise operations and maintenance surge support services.

SOCOM will obligate $5,000 in fiscal 2018 O&M funds at the time of award and work is scheduled to be completed April 5, 2023, the Defense Department said Tuesday.

Jacobs Technology secured the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract through a two-step acquisition process.

During the first phase, the command received four quotations via a fair-opportunity competition under the Government Services Administration‘s Alliant contract vehicle.

SOCOM decided to issue a sole-source, surge support IDIQ during the second phase of the procurement effort.

Jacobs announced in March the company won a potential $778 million contract to provide information technology services to the Special Operations Forces Information Environment that supports more than 70,000 users worldwide.
