US Defense Logistics Agency awards $6bn JETS contract to TCI


IT solutions provider TRI-COR Industries (TCI) has secured a J6 Enterprise Technology Services (JETS) contract with a total ceiling value of $6bn, from the US Defense Logistics Agency (DLA).

With a performance period of eight years, the JETS contract will provide DLA with near-term and future demand for enterprise technology services.

JETS is also the new vehicle of choice for enterprise IT services and solutions for the US agency.

TCI chief executive officer Elizabeth El-Natter said: “This is a major IDIQ win for TCI and an exciting milestone for our entire company.

“Through our work at the Air Mobility Command and US Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM), we have been involved in major IT programmes supporting logistics operations and have gained an expertise in military logistics operations and supporting information technologies.

“We look forward to leveraging this experience for the benefit of DLA J6, DLA end users, and other stakeholders.”

"The award to TCI validates that we are on the right track in terms of continuing to evolve our enterprise IT services capabilities and competencies."

JETS task orders will cover technical support, maintenance and sustainment, IT solutions, lifecycle management and application development.

El-Natter added: “IDIQ awards were made largely on the basis of technical merit, and the award to TCI validates that we are on the right track in terms of continuing to evolve our enterprise IT services capabilities and competencies, such as agile software engineering, software development and IT operations (DevOps), IT service management (ITSM), and Cyber Security.

“We look forward to being a very active player on the JETS vehicle, together with our teaming partners.”

Based on specific task order requirements, work on the JETS project will be carried out at different contiguous US (CONUS) and outside continental US (OCONUS) locations.

DLA offers complete logistics, acquisition and technical services to the US Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force and other federal agencies.
