The U.S. Army has selected Signal Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of General Dynamics Network Systems, to receive the first competitively awarded task order under the Total Engineering and Integration Services (TEIS II) indefinite delivery/ indefinite quantity contract.
TEIS II will be the sole contract used for mission support by the U.S. Army’s Information Systems Engineering Command (ISEC) – a subordinate command of the U.S. Army’s Communications Electronic Life Cycle Management Command (CELCMC) located at Fort Huachuca, AZ. Work will be performed at Fort Huachuca, the National Capital Region and at Army Information Systems Engineering Command customer sites worldwide. The Army has awarded a contract worth more than $2.3 billion to three systems integrator companies to provide omnibus IT services under TEIS II…
TEIS 2 succeeds the original Total Engineering and Integration Services contract awarded in March 2000, which went to Signal Corp. and OAO Corp. for a combined value of $545 million. For a more in-depth look at what, specifically, TEIS II covers, this Signal Solutions page has a good list.

(est. $776 million), and STG Inc. (est. $772 million) TEIS II competition, which consolidates several IT services contracts into one omnibus five-year vehicle with one base year and four option years. The contract’s ceiling value for each vendor is about $800 million, and the team leader is responsible for managing alliance participants in terms of bidding and executing on each task order won.
General Dynamics’ release notes that since the first TEIS contract was awarded in 2000, Signal Solutions has partnered with the USAISEC to provide the Army with rapid response and global support in transforming its information systems infrastructure across the Army enterprise. Over that time, Signal Solutions has been awarded 500 task orders, with a total value in excess of $450 million.
