US Military Sealift Command Looking to Upgrade Ships’ IT
Yesterday, DID covered US Military Sealift Command’s $3.5-4 billion T-AKE Supply Ship program, shortly after our coverage of their $210 million purchase of three pre-positioning ships. Now Systems Research Applications Corporation in Fairfax, VA received a $17 million one-year requirements contract with fixed-price task orders. If all options are exzercised, the cumulative value would be $108.5 million.
This contract provides technology services for more than 125 Military Sealift Command (MSC) ships worldwide, including the operation of an afloat network and back-up network operations center; afloat operations support; the support of a mobile sealift operations center; IT training; command, control, communications and computer systems; and alteration and upgrade support of IT systems.
The contract contains 3 one-year options, as well as up to 8 performance-based, three-month award-term periods. Work will be performed worldwide at Military Sealift Fleet Support Command in Norfolk, VA; aboard more than 125 MSC ships; and at other U.S. government facilities or operational locations; and is expected to be complete by February 2012 (with options). This contract was competitively procured with 13 proposals solicited and 4 offers received by Military Sealift Command in Washington, DC (N00033-06-D-6504).
