Amentum Selected for Multiple Contracting Pools Under ASTRO IDIQ

Amentum and its legacy companies have secured multiple spots on the General Services Administration’s ASTRO indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.

The IDIQ covers work for the development, integration, operation, maintenance and support of manned and unmanned systems, robotics and various platforms. It has no defined ceiling value and has a performance period of up to 10 years, Amentum said Wednesday.

John Vollmer, chief executive officer of Amentum and a Potomac Officers Club member, said the company’s expertise and scope of operations across all military domains make it a key member of the ASTRO family.

Contractors tapped for the IDIQ are split into 10 pools or scope areas.

Amentum was selected for the data operations pool, which covers data collection and processing activities associated with platforms supporting mission performance for land, air, sea or space. The company was also selected for the mission operations pool, which focuses on non-data collection and analysis services needed by military platforms.

It also landed spots on the aviation, space, maritime and ground pools. Contractors belonging to these pools will conduct maintenance, repair and overhaul of domain-specific military platforms.

GSA also awarded the company a spot on the development/systems integration pool, under which it will compete for the opportunity to secure system engineering tasks.

Additionally, Amentum was named to pools focused on providing training services and conducting research and development associated with military platforms.

More than 300 companies, including contracting giants and small businesses, were selected for the ASTRO IDIQ. The other awardees include Alion Science and Technology, BAE Systems Technology Solutions & Services, Booz Allen Hamilton, Deloitte Consulting, General Atomics Aeronautical Systems and Huntington Ingalls Industries.

GSA is expected to issue up to 450 awards under the contract vehicle.
