Major programs within KICCs

IT Enterprise Solutions. This two-part, $800 million contract is for hardware and software, as well as support services. Army units can buy client and notebook PCs, servers, storage systems, networking equipment, operating systems, commercial software and peripherals, as well as biometric devices and software and wearable computers. Program management, IT planning, integration and consolidation, security, and testing and evaluation are available through the services contract.

Future Combat Systems. A $14.92 billion transformational program that will link 18 manned and unmanned advanced warfighting ground and air vehicles and sensors.

Army Wholesale Logistics Modernization Program. This enterprise resource planning system culls data from two 30-year-old legacy mainframes, the Commodity Command Standard System and the Standard Depot System. Both mainframes are coded in Cobol and use batch processing and flat data files. LOGMOD will shorten the logistics cycle from ordering to delivery by letting workers track orders and assets around the world in real time, Army officials said.

Army Knowledge Online. The Army's intranet portal offers personnel instant messaging and other features, such as free Web e-mail, access to Army news articles, banking information, White Pages with contact information on other soldiers, and three search engines for the .mil domain.
