NSA targets small businesses with contract

The National Security Agency has awarded a multiple prime contract to 14 Washington-area companies under its NSA Set-Aside for Small Business (NSETS) program.

The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract will let the companies, which are each featured as primes and have put together teams of other small businesses, compete for task orders. Work under the $350 million, six-year contract includes business process, software and systems engineering; IT and operations support; and training.

NSETS is a performance-based contract vehicle that gives NSA 'quicker, better and cheaper acquisitions,' an NSA spokesperson said.

'NSA recognized that there was untapped expertise and innovative capability within the small business community,' the spokesperson said. 'This new program provides a vehicle to readily tap a much wider base of contractors.'
