GSA releases request for satellite contract

The General Services Administration earlier this month issued a request for proposals for its Satcom II contract for commercial worldwide satellite communications. Responses are due by March 14; industry estimates GSA will make an award by May 31.

Satcom II covers four types of satellite services: transport, applications, design, engineering and maintenance, and professional support as the small-business set-aside.

The five-year contract will replace satellite services contracts that expired in January, although agencies can issue task orders through the end of December and buy satellite services through other contracts, including FTS 2001.
