Transferring into the latter half of FY2022, we look back at some of the major contract wins that jumpstarted 2022. Highlighting some of these wins can give insight into the implications for your current and future competitors.
Noteworthy DISA Win – In late February 2022, it was first announced that Leidos was awarded a 10-year, $11.5 billion ceiling value Defense Enclave Services (DES) IDIQ – its largest single contract to date – the Defense Enclave Services (DES). The DES contract will attempt to unify the Defense Agencies and Field Activities (DAFAs) into a singular network architecture increasing network security, reliability, and creating a more streamlined user experience.
GDIT initially protested this award in March 2022, claiming DISA held improper discussions with Peraton (via legacy Perspecta) and that there were undisclosed conflicts of interest. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) eventually denied this protest. The protest was fully cleared in June 2022.
Leidos Wins at the VA – QTC Medical Services, a Leidos company, was awarded two contracts, both with a 6.5-year period of performance totaling $1.7 billion. QTC Medical will provide its telehealth, mobile medical units, and nationwide provider network to provide medical disability examination services and assist veterans transferring to civilian life.
Major DHS Takeaway – In February 2022, Peraton was awarded a 10-year, $2.7 billion IDIQ to provide DHS with Data Center and Cloud Optimization (DCCO) Support Services, held previously by GDIT as Data Center 1 (DC1). Peraton will provide a full suite of hybrid compute operations services to manage and operate the DHS Hybrid Computing Environment (HCE).
ODNI Enterprise-Wide Task Order – In May 2022, Peraton won a seven-year, $916 million ceiling value enterprise-wide task order to provide services for the ODNI such as data analysis, intelligence integration, policy and strategy development, knowledge operations management, and human capital management. This win complements Peraton’s recent hire of Andrew Hallman, former ODNI Principal Executive and former CIA Deputy Director of Digital Innovation.
Digital Modernization for the EPA – In April 2022, GDIT was awarded a seven-year, $661 million ceiling value task order called “Managed Application, Infrastructure, Networking, Enterprise, and Security Services (MAINES)” by the EPA to develop and operate its enterprise IT infrastructure and application platforms. Services include cloud computing, application platform management, enterprise network and security operations, access management, and cybersecurity.
Jacobs Wins at NASA – Jacobs continues its engineering and scientific services for NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC) after being awarded a 10-year, $3.9 billion Engineering, Technology, and Science (JETS) II contract. Jacobs was awarded the original JETS contract in 2013 and has since provided engineering, technology development, test services, physical science research, and facility operations and maintenance to NASA’s JSC and other NASA centers across the United States.
Jacobs also continues its work at NASA’s Ames Research Center, having been awarded in May 2022 a five-year, $220 million ceiling value follow-on to its original Aerospace Testing and Facilities Operations and Maintenance (ATOM-5) contract. Under this contract, Jacobs will perform operation, maintenance, repair, and management of Ames test facilities; planning, preparation, scheduling and execution of aeronautics and space technology tests; and design, implementation of advanced development projects.
Accenture Continues TSA Credentialing Platform Consolidation – In March 2022, Accenture was awarded a seven-year, $199 million contract to provide DHS’ TSA with consolidating three credentialing systems into a single platform to improve response time to threats. Accenture additionally provides project management, cybersecurity, and operations support services. Accenture was originally awarded a $201 million ceiling value task order by the TSA in 2020 to consolidate and maintain its credentialing systems.
The FedSavvy Strategies Takeaway
- Leidos’ DES contract reinforces dominance in DISA contracts and it expands reach across DoD as a whole…especially its Fourth Estate.
- Leidos subsidiary QTC Medical continues to protect its foothold within the VA and DoD in healthcare administration and delivery.
- Peraton’s takeaway win from GDIT at DHS demonstrates its increasing dominance in providing managed IT infrastructure services and continued erosion of GDIT market share.
- Peraton’s win at ODNI highlights its longstanding relationship with this customer and strengths in providing data analysis and intelligence integration in a classified environment.
- GDIT’s win at the EPA is important to make up for losses elsewhere in the areas of enterprise IT and cloud computing.
- Jacobs continues its longstanding relationship with NASA, being embedded in multiple NASA centers across the United States.
- Jacobs’ versatility with providing services ranging from science missions support through facility operations and maintenance makes it a versatile competitor on any future NASA contracts.
