DISA contracts could run up to $2.2 billion

The Defense Information Systems Agency has awarded set-aside contracts that could be worth nearly $2.2 billion to three small businesses.

Artel Inc. of Reston, Va.; Spacelink International LLC of Dulles, Va.; and Arrowhead Space and Telecommunications Inc. of Falls Church, Va., were awarded indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts for the Defense Information System Network Satellite Transmission Services'
Global.

The contractors will compete for the global business under the three-year deals, which have seven option years. Through the contracts, DISA wants to provide fixed satellite bandwidth for the military through commercial space satellite and earth terminal leases.

Air Force Lt. Gen. Harry D. Raduege Jr., DISA's director, said the contracts raise the bar for other federal agencies in building long-term relationships with small businesses.
