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."
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.
