NCI, Inc. has been awarded a spot on the U.S. Army’s Responsive Strategic Sourcing for Services contract, a multiple-award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract vehicle with a ceiling value of $37.4 billion.
NCI, which provides IT and professional services and solutions to the federal government, said the contract will allow it to compete for knowledge-based professional services for programs with command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance-related requirements.
“NCI is proud to assume a place on this dynamic and flexible contract vehicle,” said Paul A. Dillahay, NCI president and CEO. “This enhances our ability to provide information assurance, network infrastructure, and design and implementation services to new and current customers to ultimately benefit the warfighters who serve us all.”
The contract, awarded by the Army’s Communications‒Electronics Command, includes a 5-year base ordering period, plus a 5-year optional ordering period, according to NCI. The RS3 contract covers a wide range of support areas, including engineering; research, development, test and evaluation; logistics; acquisition and strategic planning; and education and training services. The RS3 contract consolidates and replaces several expiring multiple award contracts, including the Rapid Response Third Generation contract held by NCI.
The Army may use the contract to support other Defense Department and federal agencies, in addition to serving its own needs, according to NCI.
