RF Integration, Billerica, Massachusetts (HQ0727-18-D-SB01); Alpha Research & Technology, Desert Microelectronics Associates, and MicroNet Solutions Inc JV, El Dorado Hills, California (HQ0727-18-D-SB02); and Teledevices, Duluth, Georgia (HQ0727-18-D-SB03), are each being awarded an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ), multiple award engineering services contract for the Advanced Technology Support Program IV (ATSP4) small business (SB). The ATSP4 SB program is designed to resolve problems with obsolete, unreliable, unmaintainable, underperforming, or incapable electronics hardware and software through development of advanced technology insertions and applications to meet the requirements of the Department of Defense for a quick reaction capability. The maximum dollar ceiling including the base period and four options for all eight contracts combined is $800,000,000. Work is expected to be performed at each of the contractors’ locations, but may vary and may be world-wide with a total of 10 years of potential ordering period. All work under the subsequent task orders will be completed within five years of the final date of the ordering period. The ATSP4 SB contracts are capable of supporting foreign military sales tasks. These awards have programmatic ceiling only, funding will be obligated for each task and no funds are obligated on the basic IDIQ contracts. The contracts were competitively procured via solicitation HQ0727-15-R-0002, resulting in 11 proposals. The Defense Microelectronics Activity, McClellan, California, is the contracting activity.
