Up to $1.5B to 4 Firms for MDA Financial Management Services
The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) awarded 4 contracts worth up to $1.5 billion to provide financial management services in support of the Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) program.
The MDA is expected to spend more $100 billion over the lifetime of the BMD program. The agency has come under criticism from the GAO for its lack of transparency and accountability.
“MDA’s flexible acquisition approach has limited the ability for DOD and congressional decision makers to measure MDA’s progress on cost, schedule, and testing…MDA’s baselines have been inadequate to measure progress and hold MDA accountable. However, GAO also reported that new MDA initiatives to improve baselines could help improve acquisition accountability.”
To help it improve financial accountability, the MDA is turning to 4 contractors:
- Booz Allen Hamilton in McLean, VA (HQ0147-10-D-0018);
- Computer Sciences Corp. in Huntsville, AL (HQ0147-10-D-0019);
- Paradigm Technologies in Arlington, VA (HQ0147-10-D-0020); and
- Odyssey Systems Consulting Group in Wakefield, MA (HQ0147-10-D-0021).
Each firm is being awarded an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to provide advisory and assistance services to MDA’s Business Financial Management Organization.
This procurement is managed by the MDA’s Engineering and Support Services Program Office. This program office is responsible for centrally managing the acquisition of advisory and assistance services for the agency.
Each contract has a not-to-exceed ordering ceiling of $374.8 million. The companies will have the opportunity to bid on each individual task order.
Work under these contracts will be performed in Huntsville, AL; Los Angeles, CA; Colorado Springs, CO; Indianapolis, IN; Dahlgren, VA; Arlington, VA; Albuquerque, NM; and Columbus, Ohio. The performance period is through August 2015.
