DoD Adds 15 Contractors to Potential $28B Tech R&D Services IDIQ

Fifteen companies have landed spots on the unrestricted full-and-open track of a potential nine-year, $28 billion contract vehicle for technology research and development services to the Defense Department.

DoD said Tuesday this group of contractors may vie for at least $15 million in task orders under Pool 1 of the Defense Technical Information Center’s Information Analysis Center Multi-Award Contract.

The awardees are:

  • AECOM’s (NYSE: ACM) URS Federal Services business
  • Adams Communications & Engineering Technology
  • Alion Science and Technology
  • BAE Systems
  • Battelle
  • Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH)
  • Engility (NYSE: EGL) 
  • General Dynamics’ (NYSE: GD) information technology business (through CSRA)
  • Georgia Tech Applied Research
  • KBR’s (NYSE: KBR) government services business, KBRWyle
  • Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) 
  • MacAulay-Brown
  • ManTech International (Nasdaq: MANT) 
  • Raytheon (NYSE: RTN)
  • Southwest Research Institute

The Air Force Installation Contracting Agency will obligate $54,000 in fiscal years 2018 and 2019 R&D funds as a minimum-order guarantee.

Work will generally take place at various government facilities through Sept. 29, 2027.

DoD unveiled the first set of awards in July, with three nonprofit organizations winning the right to compete for chemical, biological radiological and nuclear defense-related work under the IAC-MAC Pool 3 category.

A solicitation notice posted in October last year indicated that the department will also award small business set-aside positions on the contract.
