The task order is under the General Services Administration‘s Alliant 2 indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract. It has a 1-year base period with four option years and a 6-month extension of service option.
Ultimately, the contract supports the Air Force’s prior acquisition of IBM TRIRIGA, a commercial integrated workplace management system. The Air Force is in the process of converting all its installations to the system by 2023, and the system will modernize Air Force legacy Civil Engineering IT systems like its Automated Civil Engineering System.
And NextGen IT services are necessary to provide civil engineering airmen with critical reliable information needed for projects, funding validation and asset management support. Under the task order, Serco will manage, configure, deploy, sustain and improve the NextGen IT program solutions for Civil Engineering to support its transformation efforts.
Specifically, Serco is responsible for configuration, software development, fielding, deployment, operations support and sustainment of TRIRIGA as it lives in a cloud environment. The company will provide program management, software validation and deployment, application support, systems engineering, data management, cloud computing migration services, a NextGen IT service desk and system web services, among other things.
According to the company, this will be the largest implementation of IBM TRIRIGA yet, and Serco is pleased to be providing the Air Force with better war-fighter technology.
“Our Workforce and Facilities Management Solutions Practice team has extensive experience utilizing IBM TRIRIGA for our clients and understand the critical importance of providing the Civil Engineering Airmen with accurate real-time data necessary to make important strategic decisions and efficiently manage Air Force resources,” said Dave Dacquino, Serco’s chairman and CEO.
And this mission spreads far and wide – the Air Force supports 170 installations worldwide, including 700 million square feet of facilities, 500 miles of runways and 10 million acres of land managed by 66,000 civil engineers.
For this contract, Serco will be performing most of this work from the Gunter Annex at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Alabama.
