Twenty-three small businesses will engineer information technology innovations for the Defense Information Systems Agency, after winning spots on a maximum $7.5 billion contract Monday.
The Systems Engineering, Technology, and Innovation (SETI) contract uses “best value tradeoff” evaluation, where government decides whether the tech advantages of a solution warrant a higher price.
All 23 awardees will receive a $500 minimum guarantee during the base ordering period, with additional funds allocated by task order.
SETI runs five years with another five-year option, as the Department of Defense aims to deliver timely, agile engineering task orders to small and large businesses while reducing agency costs.
Winning small businesses were: Affinity Innovations LLC, Applied Systems Engineering Joint Venture LLC, A Square Group LLC, Business Computers Management Consulting Group LLC, Bluestone Logic LLC, Credence Management Solutions LLC, DHPC Technologies Inc., InCadence Strategic Solution Corp., INNOPLEX LLC., Innovation Evolution Technologies JV LLC, Innovative Government Solutions JV LLC, Integrated Systems Inc., Interactive Process Technology LLC, Mission Support LP, NetCentric Technologies Inc., Riverside Engineering LLC, Semper AASKI Alliance Inc., Superlative Technologies Inc., Synergy Business Innovation & Solutions Inc., TechSynap Corp., Tiber Creek Consulting Inc., ValidaTek Inc., and VOLANT Associates LLC.
Small businesses were part of a restricted pool, while a second, unrestricted pool received awards on June 14, 2018. Winning small businesses were selected from among 99 proposals.
