Contractor: Boeing Company, Integrated Defense Systems - Global Services and Support Division
Department: Missile Defense Agency
The Boeing Co., Integrated Defense Systems (Global Services and Support Division), St. Louis, Missouri, is being awarded $249, 937,154 for a cost plus fixed fee contract for operations and sustainment support for the fielded portions of the Ground-Based Midcourse Defense (GMD) System for calendar year (CY) 2009 with an option for CY 2010. The principal places of performance are the contractor’s facility in Huntsville, Ala., and Missile Defense Agency facilities at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif., and Fort Greely, Alaska. This sole source contract is awarded pursuant to 10 USC 2304(c)(1), as implemented by Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 6.302-1. Specifically, as provided in the Justification and Approval for Other Than Full and Open Competition, Boeing, as the incumbent prime contractor for the operations and sustainment of the GMD Weapon System, is the only qualified source to perform this effort without unacceptable delay to critical program schedules and unaffordable duplication of costs. The MDA, Huntsville, Ala., is the contracting activity (HQ0147-09-C-0007). The period of performance is from Jan. 2009 through Dec. 2009 with a one year option to continue work from Jan. 2010 through Dec. 2010. The contract will be incrementally funded for $133,429,130 at award. Fiscal year (FY) 09 Research, Development, Test and Evaluation funds (RDT&E) will be used for the primary operations and sustainment support activities. FY09 Army Operation and Maintenance (O&M) funds will be used for training of Army soldier-operators. The RDT&E funds will not expire at the end of the fiscal year. The O&M funds will expire at the end of the fiscal year. This award is an interim measure which will continue essential O&S support to the GMD system in the near-term while MDA acquires and verifies necessary technical data and develops its strategy for competitive acquisition of follow-on GMD O&S support. On January 29, 2009, MDA published a formal announcement of its intent relative to follow-on GMD O&S efforts subsequent to effort covered by this current award. The purpose of the Jan. 29, 2009 FEDBIZOPPS announcement is to initiate immediate dialogue with industry regarding a competitive acquisition strategy for follow-on GMD O&S support requirements, with a stated intent to make a competitive award for such requirements no later than calendar year 2011.
