DISA Readies $5 Billion RFP Bundle

A raft of request for proposals will address Defense Information Systems Agency projects in provisioning, net operations, net assurance, and network maintenance.

The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) is readying request for proposals (RFPs) for several major contracts that could total up to $5 billion, the agency confirmed via e-mail this week.

The contracts are in support of DISA and Department of Defense (DoD) agencies' IT and telecommunications requirements and are a part of the agency's Global Information Grid (GIG) Services Management-Operations, it said. The RFPs are set to be released later this summer and in the fall.

According to documentation for the RFPs on FedBizOpps.gov, requirements for the awards are to obtain performance-based services that include provisioning, net operations, net assurance, and network maintenance on a global basis.

DISA is a component of the DoD that provides computing infrastructure and services to the military. The agency awarded 29,294 contracts last year for a total of $3.8 billion, it said.

Science Applications International topped the list of contractors receiving payment from DISA last year, with $339 million in obligated payments. Northrop Grumman ($310 million), Apptis Incorporated ($266 million), Computer Sciences Corp. ($174 million), and Artel ($152 million) round out the list of top firms in terms of dollar-value awards from the agency in 2009.

Verizon Business Network Services, ActionNet, Unisys, and Deloitte & Touche also were awarded major contracts with DISA last year for a range of activities, including software support and enterprise network services.
