US Department of Defense

AASKI Technology, Accenture Federal Services, BAE Systems Technology, Booz Allen Hamilton, Deloitte Consulting, Peraton (formerly Harris Corp.), International Business Machines, KeyW, LEIDOS, Linquest, NES Associates, Northrop Grumman, Parsons Government Services and Vencore, were each awarded an contract for systems engineering, technology, and innovation. 

This was a competitive solicitation for a multiple-award ID/IQ contract.  Two pools were solicited, one unrestricted and one restricted for small businesses.  These awards are for the unrestricted pool.  The total capacity of the entire indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ) is $7.5 billion, the US department of defense said in a statement Thursday.

Awardees will each receive a minimum guarantee of $500 million applicable to the base ordering period only.  All other funding will be obligated at the task order-level.  Performance locations will be identified at the task order-level and may be worldwide.  Proposals were solicited via the Federal Business Opportunities website, and 35 proposals were received for the unrestricted pool. 

The period of performance is a five-year base period with one five-year option period.  The restricted pool, i.e., small businesses, will be awarded separately.
