Earlier this month, during the industry day officials from the warfighter’s IT shop, delineated 55 contract opportunities anticipated to be awarded within the next two years, and the vast majority of which will come before the end of FY 2019. Researchers from the Pulse of GovCon came up with this estimation after they analyzed 30 of those IT contracts DISA expects to award over the next couple of years that add up to more than USD27.5 billion.

One of those contracts is a potential USD13 billion single-award contract for a software upgrade that looks to address multitenant issues and a tag processing problem in a virtual local area network. DISA expects to issue a solicitation for the Joint Regional Security Stacks Lancope/Stealthwatch Technical Refresh program by the second quarter of FY 2019 and award the contract through NASA’s Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement vehicle.

The analysis indicated that DISA plans to release a request for proposals by the second quarter of FY 2019 for the potential USD 8.2 billion Defense Enterprise Office Solutions (DEOS) contract that intends to replace enterprise legacy platforms and data stores. The agency aims to award the DEOS contract through GSA’s IT Schedule 70 by the third quarter of FY 2019. The agency expects to award another possible USD 2.4 billion contract to Navy enterprise Military Housing Technical System, Application and End User Support contract through its Encore III vehicle by the third quarter of FY 2019.
