Treasury ready to recompete TCS network

The Treasury Department is laying the groundwork for a follow-on contract to the $1.2 billion Treasury Communications Systems.

A draft request for proposals for the Treasury Communications Enterprise was due for release late last week; the final RFP for a backbone comm infrastructure is tentatively scheduled to hit the streets March 1. The department wants to award the TCE contract by October.

TCS is now in the eighth year of a 10-year contract held by Northrop Grumman Corp.

The contract could be worth as much as $3 billion if all options are exercised, said Priscilla Magnusen, a federal analyst for market researcher Input of Vienna, Va.

Under the 10-year TCE contract, the winning vendor will provide comprehensive network and enterprise services on an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity basis.
