Intelligence deal. The Army has tapped four companies to vie for work under a $209 million support deal for its Intelligence and Security Command.

The command, based at Fort Belvoir, Va., analyzes intelligence information for trends and patterns, and works with other military branches to support joint operations.

The companies will compete for work in numerous categories under five-year, Rapid Labor Service Support Requirement contracts. The four vendors are:
  • Intelligence Enterprise Joint Venture of Chantilly, Va., which combines ManTech International Corp. of Fairfax, Va., and EWA Land Information Group of Herndon, Va.

  • L-3 Communications Corp. of New York

  • Science Applications International Corp. of San Diego

  • Sytex Inc. of Doylestown, Pa.

The work will include management support, technical assistance and systems engineering. The four vendors will also compete to provide systems, network and software support for the Defense Department Intelligence Information System Integration and Engineering Support project.

PC donation. The Defense Finance and Accounting Service has donated more than 100 surplus desktop and laptop computers to Marines stationed at Camp Lejeune, N.C., and to some deployed overseas.

The computers were being replaced as part of DFAS' Desktop Management Initiative. Last year, DFAS announced its plans to modernize and standardize desktop computers through a contract made under the General Services Administration's Millenia vehicle.

The donated computers will help members of the 2nd Marine Division gain access to DFAS' online pay tool, myPay, to view their payroll earnings and tax statements. The portal, which went live in 2000, also lets users update their federal and state tax-withholding information, make address changes, and update bank account and electronic funds transfer information.

Support deal. The Defense Department has awarded an $11 million IT support and engineering contract for its Tri-Service Infrastructure Management Program Office.

Under the four-year contract, RGII Technologies of Annapolis, Md., will help run the Military Health System, a comprehensive network used globally by military medical personnel.

RGII will be working with the program office to install and maintain a common, standards-based communications and computing infrastructure.

'The Military Health System is a dynamic network of health care programs and technologies, constantly growing and evolving with the emergence of new standards, regulations, clinical practices and operational needs,' said Kathryn Freeland, RGII's chief executive officer. 'With that in mind, our objective is to work closely with TIMPO over the next four years to plan, design, test and evaluate a flexible, yet highly secure, technical infrastructure that allows the MHS to expand according to program and patient needs.'
