The maximum dollar value, including the base period and 4 option years, for all 6 contracts is $200 million.
The contractors will carry out new construction, renovation, alteration, demolition, and repair work through design-build or design-bid-build projects. The work will be performed at a broad range of sites, including commercial and institutional facilities, administrative and industrial facilities, housing facilities, child care centers, lodges, recreational/fitness centers, retail complexes, warehouses, offices, community centers, medical facilities, operational airfield facilities, hangars, armories, fire stations, auditoriums, religious facilities and manufacturing facilities.
The winners of the NAVFAC Northwest contracts are:
CACI International in Arlington, VA received a $24 million task order to provide program management and technical engineering services to upgrade the Common Ground Systems (CGS) with subsystems from the US Army’s Distributed Common Ground System-Army (DCGS-A) ground mobile system.
The DCGS-A integrates intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) data within a single system to streamline the Army’s ability to process and disseminate the data to commanders in the field.
ITT Corp.’s NexGen Communications in Dulles, VA received a $9.7 million firm-fixed-price contract to supply 1,450 distributed tactical communication systems-radio only (DTCS-RO) communication devices to the US Navy.
The DTCS-RO communication devices are hand-held, beyond line-of-sight, push-to-talk tactical radios that use the Iridium satellite system. The device provides voice communications and Blue Force tracking, which provides US soldiers on the move, near real-time, situational awareness by showing where friendly and enemy units are located.
ITT acquired NexGen Communications when it bought EDO Corp. in 2007 for $1.7 billion.
