A UOC General Dynamics Decision Systems in Scottsdale, AZ won $72.5 million for Modification P00067 under previously awarded contract M67854-02-C-2052 for the Unit Operations Center (UOC) program. This modification includes recurring engineering change costs for 10 UOCs, plus an exercised option for another 50 UOCs. What’s a UOC, exactly? The UOC is an integrated, mobile, command and control center consisting of shelter, power, cabling, processing systems, and trailers. UOCs are portable, modular command and control centers designed to support Marines wherever they are deployed. These systems are supporting Marine forces in Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), and are also supporting Marines’ pre-deployment training and testing in the United States. Based on this award’s amount, and the timeline shown by all DefenseLINK announcements under this contract, it would appear that the UOC program is hitting its stride. This contract was priced on a competitive solicitation, and the engineering change is within contract scope. There were four offerors. Work will be performed in Scottsdale, AZ and is expected to be complete by June 2007. The Marine Corps Systems Command in Quantico, VA issued the contract.
