Army to Offer IT Services Contracts Valued at $10B

The U.S. Army expects to issue requests for proposals for a potential $10B multi-award contracts in the next six months.

In his speech at the AFCEA Belvoir event held on Sept. 29, Ross Guckert, program executive officer at Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems, disclosed that the organization will offer multi-billion contracts for IT services. 

One of the deals is called the Information Technology Enterprise Solutions-4 Hardware, which has a base period of five years with five one-year options. An initial request will come out by January 2021 while the final RFP is scheduled for release by April 2021. 

The ITES-4H program will deliver the Army IT products and services such as client servers, storage and network environment, as well as maintenance of legacy systems. The initiative is a follow-on for ITES-3H, a contract that supports the agency’s enterprise infrastructure. 

PEO EIS is also set to issue three additional RFPs in the first fiscal quarter of 2021. The unit is seeking contractors for the migration and management of the organization’s systems in a cloud platform. The contract has an estimated value of $200M and a work period of one year with two option years. 

By December 2020, the office will put out another RFP for IT services for the Acquisition, Logistics and Technology Enterprise Systems and Services, a network security company that supports the agency’s data warehouses. The contract, estimated between $220M and $260M and a performance period of one year with four option years, will be awarded to a single vendor by April 2021. 

A spokesperson for the PEO EIS said a woman-owned, small-scale company will receive a contract for strategic communication services. The firm will be tasked with the agency’s digital media, graphic design, protocol, and congressional and public affairs. The agreement, valued between $15M and $20M, has a work period of one-year with four option years.
