BGOV: Army Eyes June 30 Release of Final RFP for $5.1B GTACS II Contract

The U.S. Army plans to issue a final solicitation by the end of June for a potential 10-year, $5.1 billion contract vehicle for information technology hardware and services to support the development of a tactical communications network for warfighters, Bloomberg Government reported Monday.

The Global Tactical Advanced Communication Systems II contract covers hardware and software engineering; program management and analysis; onsite engineering support; supply chain management; and systems engineering services to facilitate the delivery of data and voice communications to soldiers.

The report said the service branch released the draft request for proposals in August 2017 and plans to award about 16 spots on the GTACS II contract, including eight for small businesses.

BGOV noted that approximately $704 million worth of orders have been obligated to 18 companies that have positions on the first GTACS contract since 2013.
