Army Recompeting $600 Million Information System Command MAC

May 18, 2018 Kevin Brancato

The U.S. Army Information Systems Engineering Command (USAISEC) is competing a five-year, $600 million, follow-on multiple-award contract to provide information technology services worldwide.

The contract, called Total Engineering and Integration Services IV (TEIS IV), is set to run between July 21, 2020, and July 2025, according to a request for information released May 15.

The three incumbents on TEIS III have won a total of $321 million on 127 orders since it was awarded in August 2011. NCI Inc. leads with $153 million, followed by General Dynamics Corp. with $105 million, and Science Applications International Corp. ($62 million). The reported obligations for TEIS III are far below the $892 million ceiling value established at award.

USAISEC would use TEIS IV to buy a full range of systems engineering and information technology support. According to the draft performance work statement, support is “around the globe in challenging environments including remote locations, sometimes hostile territories, and highly secure facilities involving the highest level clearances.”

International work may flow through the upcoming contract, but Bloomberg Government’s analysis of historical spending suggests those levels may not be high. That’s because federal contracts data reports show that all work on TEIS III has been performed in the continental U.S. Using keywords — such as Korea, Germany, and OCONUS (outside continental U.S.) — it is possible to associate $48.5 million in obligations on nine task orders with work possibly performed overseas.

USAISEC is part of U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM), and is headquartered in Fort Huachuca, Arizona. It has offices across the continental U.S. and in Hawaii, South Korea, and Germany.

NCI and General Dynamics were on TEIS II from fiscal 2005 through 2010, along with STG Group Inc. General Dynamics was on the first iteration of TEIS, winning $436 million in starting in fiscal 2000. Lockheed Martin Corp. was also on the original TEIS, winning $74 million. In total, the TEIS program has provided vendors $1.5 billion since fiscal 2000.
