Three indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts from three federal agencies should be up for competition during the first and second quarter of fiscal 2014.

All three programs focus on administrative and logistics support and information technology-related professional services, and will have restricted competitions for disadvantaged small businesses. Two have incumbent vendors, while one is a new competition.

Here is a look at the three:

Department of Homeland Security

Program Management, Administrative, Clerical and Technical Services II will provide a wide range of services for DHS in two categories. The first category covers program management, technical services and operational services, while the second category provides administrative services.

The program is expected to result in contracts with two base years and three one-year option periods, for a maximum of five years. The competition will be restricted to service-disabled, veteran-owned small businesses.

The contract has 28 incumbent vendors and is expected to have a ceiling value of $1.5 billion. Deltek anticipates the solicitation’s release in December.

U.S. Agency for International Development

The Global Health Supply Chain program plans to award a single contract vehicle for procurement and long-term global supply improvement of laboratory supplies, such as rapid test kits.

The program will be restricted to small businesses. It is expected to have a five-year base period with one additional three-year option period, for a maximum of eight years.

According to the U.S. Agency for International Development fiscal 2013 forecast, the contract’s value could range from $75 million to $500 million. The solicitation is expected in December.


The Space and Missile Defense Advisory and Assistance Services contract will seek non-personnel advisory and assistance services. The contract will support Army Space and Missile Defense Command, Army Forces Strategic Command and agencies with which they collaborate on space and missile defense, global strike, information operations and command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.

The Army program will only be open to small businesses, and the performance period is projected to be five years. There are four incumbents.

Deltek anticipates that the maximum ceiling amount will not exceed $496 million, and a solicitation is expected in January.
