The General Services Administration has asked industry to submit proposals for a potential 10-year, multiple-award master contract to research, develop, maintain and support manned, optionally manned and unmanned systems and robotics.
A solicitation notice posted Monday says the ASTRO master contract will consist of 10 individual indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contracts or pools and GSA intends to make 45 awards in each pool and provide offerors an option to select the pools they intend to compete for.
The 10 pools of ASTRO are data operations, mission operations, aviation, ground, space, maritime, development/systems integration, research and development, support services and training.
The ASTRO program is sponsored by the Department of Defense and seeks support for platforms and robotic systems that may be based on land, sea, air or space. There is no maximum dollar ceiling for the master contract and the minimum guarantee per contract in each pool is $3,500.
GSA, which issued a draft solicitation for the ASTRO program in February, will accept proposals through Oct. 30.
