DISA awards DGS two contracts of up to $3b

The Defense Department has awarded two contracts potentially worth $3 billion for lifecycle management of classified and unclassified portions of the Defense Information Systems Network Global Solutions requirement.

The contractors, Science Applications International Corp. of San Diego and SETA Corp. of McLean, Va., will assist the Defense Information Systems Agency in integrating disparate military telecommunications systems into the DISA-managed telecommunications infrastructure.

The contractors will manage, update and expand DISN, and provide network services to Defense personnel by connecting other voice, data and video networks to the system.

The work will include network management, engineering, installation, operation, maintenance, integrated logistics support and program management.

The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts, awarded Oct. 5, are for one base year with four one-year options. A portion of the work has been set aside for small business participation, according to Defense officials.
