Contract Award Number: GS00Q14OADU135
Task/Delivery Order Number: 70RCSA21FR0000021
“The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Office of Procurement Operations (OPO), Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Acquisition Division (CISAAD), in conjunction with the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA), Cybersecurity Division (CSD) Office of Strategy, Performance, & Resources (SPR) prepared this justification.
DHS/OPO intends to award a task/delivery order without considering other awardees for contract number GS00Q140ADU135 pursuant to FAR 16.505(b)(2)(ii)(B).
“CSD requires continued Management Support Services in order to support organizations within CSD as well as their senior leaders with mission support requirements. Currently the work is being performed under Task Order No. HSHQDC-16-F-00077 with General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT), which was awarded under their OASIS contract GS00Q14OADU135, after OPO exercised the Clause FAR 52.217-8 Option to Extend Services, which is a set to expire on March31, 2021. The follow-on procurement is currently being recompeted and has and estimated award date of June 1. 2021. The six-month bridge is to assist with transition support that will be required since that effort involves a large number of FTEs. It will also assist with continuing services while allowing time to complete the suitability process on the follow-on requirement. To avoid a gap in support and allow the program offices to remain the Nation’s leader in Cybersecurity, the only approach is to issue a task order to the incumbent General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) until a new award can be made. Total vlue is $4,720,692.75 as outlined…”
The Contracting Officer has determined that issuing the proposed order to GDIT for the required program support services represents the best value and will result in the lowest overall cost, considering price and administrative costs, to meet the Government’s needs. The CO has determined that the anticipated prices will be fair and reasonable based upon the OASIS labor rates which have already been determined to be fair and reasonable and were used as a basis for pricing on the current task order …”
“… The agency is actively pursuing a full and open competition for the follow-on contract to the existing task order. This six-month task order is required to ensure there are no mission impacts to the agency during the transition from the current contract to the follow-on,”
