US Army awards additional TEIS III task orders to NCI

26 November 2012

NCI has been awarded multiple contracts to continue providing support services to the US Army under the existing Total Engineering and Information Systems (TEIS) III contract vehicle.

Valued at a combined $27.1m, the order has a two-year base performance period, and involves both new and follow-on work for the company in support of the US Army Information Systems Engineering Command (USAISEC), which is located at Fort Huachuca in Arizona, US.

The latest task orders are being awarded as part of the original $892m TEIS III contract secured by the company in September 2011 for the provision of information systems engineering and IT support to USAISEC and its customers worldwide.

NCI president Brian Clark said the latest contracts will leverage the company's earlier successes while also introducing novel technological solutions to the Department of Defense (DoD) enterprise.

''They represent NCI's full-spectrum IT support capabilities to USAISEC customers across the US Army and the DoD Joint Community,'' Clark added.

Under the new contracts, the company will provide a broad spectrum of base realignment and closure (BRAC)-like support, including surveying, design, installation and testing for command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence/information technology (C4I/IT) relocation operations.

Additional responsibilities include the provision of engineer, furnish, install, and test (EFIT) capabilities to local area networks (LAN) and wireless LANs.

The support services will directly benefit many DoD customers, including the Special Operations Command South (SOCSOUTH), Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM), Military Health System (MHS) Cyber-infrastructure Services (MCiS), and the Military Construction Army (MCA) and Sustainment Repair/Maintenance (SRM) programme.

TEIS III is a next-generation indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) programme designed to offer engineering, information assurance and systems integration computer services to army facilities across the US and worldwide until 2016.
