US Army awards R2-3G task order to NCI


NCI has received a contract to provide a diverse range of engineering, architecture, integration, and readiness support services to the US Army.

The $14.5m cost-plus-fixed-fee task order comprises a ten-month base period and two one year option periods under the company's Rapid Response: Third Generation (R2-3G) indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract.

Under the contract, the company will provide engineering and technical support for army interoperability certification testing and configuration management of the army's LandWarNet-Mission Command software baselines at the Army Central Technical Support Facility (CTSF).

NCI president Brian Clark said: "This effort will demonstrate our delivery of high-quality and efficient engineering support to mission-critical test and interoperability efforts.

"We look forward to utilising NCI's capabilities to provide our technical solutions in support of the current and future army LandWarNet-Mission Command."

"This effort will demonstrate our delivery of high-quality and efficient engineering support to mission-critical test and interoperability efforts."

The task order also covers the provision of technical engineering support to system of systems engineering, information awareness and information technology efforts.

Developed by the Army Program Communications-Electronics Command, the R2-3G contract aims to empower federal managers to acquire contractor-provided services efficiently through a unique, competitive, and streamlined business process.

The contract is a follow-on to the R2 contract, and helps the Department of Defense, federal agencies, and state and local governments to procure a broad spectrum of technology goods and services, such as system integration, analyses, and logistics support, as well as training and engineering support services, including re-engineering and reverse engineering.

Headquartered at Fort Hood, Texas, the CTSF performs AIC testing and configuration management for all operational through tactical-level command, control, communications, computing and intelligence systems, applications, and hardware before release to the field.
