Small Business Set-Aside
The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA)/Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization (DITCO) at Scott Air Force Base, IL intends to issue a sole source modification to CSC Systems & Solutions LLC, 15000 Conference Center Drive, Chantilly, VA 20151-3819. The proposed modification is a continuation and extension of the work performed by CSC under contract HC1013-04-C-5000 that was awarded in February 2004 as an other than full and open competitive action. This modification will extend the period of performance of the contract for the existing Government Emergency Telecommunications Service (GETS) and Wireless Priority Service (WPS) Integration Contract (IC) by one year plus an option for one additional year for the period of 01 January 2009 through 31 December 2010. This service is a major Department of Homeland Security program for improving national security and emergency preparedness telecommunications in the event of natural or man-made disasters by utilizing the surviving assets of the public switched network to provide priorities and routing alternatives not available to normal telecommunications traffic. This modification will allow for the completion of taskings that were expected to be completed under the contract’s original period of performance. Efforts requiring this extension include implementation of WPS Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) Interoperability Specifications (IOS) and completion of National Security and Emergency Preparedness (NS/EP) Next Generation Networks (NGN) Priority Service efforts. It is essential that NS/EP priority requirements be incorporated in the NGN core and access to eventually transition existing priority telecommunications voice services (GETS, Special Routing Arrangement Service (SRAS, and WPS) to NGN. GETS, SRAS, and WPS capabilities are based on circuit-based network technologies that will disappear as networks transition to Internet protocol (IP) packet-based platforms. To maintain operational readiness and continuous capability to perform its primary mission, DHS and its major customer i.e., DoD cannot afford any disruption of GETS/WPS services. The above contract action will be awarded sole source to CSC, based on their unique ability and capability to maintain the current GETS/WPS services and to begin the transition of these existing services to NGN. The statutory authority for other than full and open competition is 10 U.S.C. 2304(c)(1), only one responsible source and no other supplies or services will satisfy agency requirements. All inquiries regarding the sole source modification shall be submitted electronically and directed to Joyce B. King, Contracting Officer, Phone 618-229-9646, email joyce.king@disa.mil, or Cheryl Wilsing, Contract Specialist, Phone 618-229-9145, email cheryl.wilsing@disa.mil. (NAICS) 541618 is applicable to this acquisition.
