The Defense Health Agency completes its discussions with bidders for this global IT service desk contract and plans to award contracts to 28 additional small businesses.
The Defense Health Agency has wrapped up its reconsideration of proposals for a potential $2.5 billion IT services contract vehicle and has opted to increase the number of winners from six to 34.
Back in the summer, DHA originally made awards to six companies to provide IT service desk and other support work around the world under the 10-year contract.
AccelGov, Systems Plus and Syneren Technologies subsequently filed protests at the U.S. Court of Federal Claims to challenge exclusion from the winners list. DHA chose to open discussions and evaluate updated proposals from the rest of the field, while the original group of six kept their awards.
Now in a preaward notice posted Wednesday, DHA said it has notified 28 companies that the agency has determined them to be “apparently successful offerors” for the Military Health System Enterprise IT Services Geographic Service Provider vehicle.
