PAE Lands Spot on State Department’s $3B GSS 2.0 Contract
PAE has been awarded a spot on the Department of State's $3.3B Global Support Strategy 2.0 indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract vehicle.
The Department of State has selected three prime contractors for the potential $3.3B IDIQ, which covers offsite biometric collection, appointment scheduling, delivery, consular fee collection, crowd management and on-site personnel responsible for applicant verification, PAE said Wednesday.
PAE President and CEO John Heller, highlighting the company's 2017 acquisition of FCi Federal, said PAE is “uniquely positioned to deliver proprietary, customized, technology-enabled solutions for the State Department.”
The GSS contract facilitates 98 percent of the Department of State's visa processing worldwide. PAE said the award is an opportunity to provide integrated solutions for consular operations at U.S. embassies and consulates in 120 countries.
Under the terms of the contract, PAE will help with the worldwide processing of non-immigrant and immigrant visa applications.
The company said it will compete for task orders by taking advantage of its capabilities in biometric collection solutions, secure data processing and integrated technology services.
“This program highlights PAE’s continued success executing our strategy of leveraging past acquisitions to apply acquired capabilities, open significant addressable market areas for growth, and win new mission-critical programs across the globe," added Heller, a five-time Wash100 awardee.
Headquartered in Falls Church, Virginia, PAE is a technology company that specializes in global missions, training, logistics, operations and maintenance services, national security reconstruction and justice training, among others.
