The Headquarters Ogden Air Logistics Center at Hill Air Force Base, UT issued a $1.9 billion indefinite-delivery/ indefinite-quantity contract (FA8222-05-D-0001, 0010) for Engineering and technical services in support of all U.S. Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC) weapon systems, subsystems, and related processes via the Design and Engineering Support Program II.
The Air Force can issue delivery orders to the various winning companies totaling up to maximum amount indicated, though actual requirements may necessitate less. Solicitation began October 2004, negotiations were completed May 2005, and the contract will end by June 2012.
The contract, dubbed Design and Engineering Support Program (DESP II), has a wide scope aimed at technology and engineering services. The purpose of the contract is to provide rapid, high quality engineering and technical services to the Air Force Air Logistics Center, Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC), the Army’s Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command (TACOM), Department of Defense agencies, and other government entities (e.g., NASA, DOT, DOS, EPA, OSHA, etc.).
DESP II allows for technology development, deployment, reliability, maintainability, environmental and safety compliance, and development of information management systems. DESP II also includes engineering tasks such as concept exploration, systems analysis, prototype manufacturing, system integration, testing, modeling, and simulation.
