NCI has been awarded an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract to provide support services to the US Army National Guard's (ARNG) training systems integration branch.

The single-source contract, which began in 2013, includes a six-month base performance period with three one-year options and a maximum potential value of $30m.

Under the agreement, the company will provide a broad spectrum of training services aligned with the army training and doctrine command's (TRADOC) army-learning concept 2015 (ALC 2015), including distributed learning content development, and online portal and facilities management.

"This new work expands our 20-year partnership with the National Guard in providing mission-critical support to our nation's soldiers."

NCI president Brian Clark said the company will support the ARNG's training systems integration branch in its mission to provide technology-enabled training content, access, delivery, and management to further boost the command's readiness.

"This new work expands our 20-year partnership with the National Guard in providing mission-critical support to our nation's soldiers," Clark said.

Also known as Pamphlet 525-8-2, the ALC 2015 is a document developed by the TRADOC, which describes a holistic and integrated training environment. It gives soldiers, leaders and units the capability to execute a full spectrum of operations.

Specifically, the document is learner-centric, more engaging, relevant, rigorous and accessible for recruits who grew up in a digital world, as well as seasoned army professionals with repeated deployments.
