Harris has been awarded the Network-Centric Solutions-2 (NETCENTS-2) Application Services contract by the US Air Force (USAF) to compete for a wide range of information technology (IT) services projects.
According to the multiple award contract, the company will provide a wide range of services, including sustainment, migration, integration, training, help desk support, testing and operational support to the USAF.
Harris will also provide other services such as exposing data from authoritative data sources to support web-services or service-oriented architecture constructs in USAF enterprise environments, as part of the contract.
Harris IT Services president Wayne Lucernoni said the company will work with the US Air Force to help operate the new technology in such a challenging environment."We will offer the most effective and efficient services available and partner with the Air Force to stay ahead of its evolving IT requirements," Lucernoni said.
Additionally, Harris will help the USAF to sustain its legacy systems, migrate to new systems and develop new mission capabilities.
The $960m indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract has a three-year base ordering period and four one-year options, and is expected to be available for ordering in late 2012.
In addition to Harris, the NETCENTS-2 Application Services contract team includes Lockheed Martin Information Systems and Global Solutions, TYBRIN, Harris IT Services, SRA International, Raytheon and L-3 National Security Solutions.
The NETCENTS-2 contracts will provide a wide range of IT products and services support, including sustainment, migration, integration, training, help desk, testing and programme operations for the Air Force.
The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center/HICK, at Maxwell Air Force Base-Gunter Annex, Alabama, US, will serve as the contracting activity.
