End-to-end information technology solutions provider Intelligent Waves has secured a contract position on the US Army’s potential Information Technology Enterprise Solutions-3 Services (ITES-3S) award, valued at $12.1bn.

Managed by the US Army’s Computer Hardware, Enterprise Software and Solutions (CHESS) programme, the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract will continue for a period of nine years.

The firm-fixed-price and time-and-materials contract is expected to serve as the primary source of information technology (IT)-related services for the US Army across the globe.

Intelligent Waves president and chief executive officer Jared Shepard said: “The ITES-3S award is a very important achievement for Intelligent Waves.

“The award provides access to new opportunities to support the Department of the Army while allowing us to strengthen and grow long-term relationships with our army customers.”

“The ITES-3S award is a very important achievement for Intelligent Waves.”

ITES-3S is a follow-on award to the service’s ITES-2S contract that was awarded to 16 prime contractors in 2006.

Designed to deliver nearly all areas of enterprise-level IT services, ITES-3S has made a total of 135 awards to date, 83 of which are on the small business set-aside track. Bids were solicited via the internet with 187 received.

The scope of the contract includes the delivery of cyber security, information assurance, business process re-engineering, enterprise design, integration and consolidation, network/systems operation and maintenance, telecommunications/systems operation and maintenance, supply chain management, and IT education and training.

The project is expected to be completed on 23 September 2027.

The US Army Contracting Command is serving as the contracting activity.
