The U.S. military plans to issue a solicitation in August for a potential 10-year, $7.9 billion contract to purchase commercial information technology platforms in support of the service branch, Department of Defense, and other federal agencies.
Common Hardware Systems 6th Generation is an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract that aims to centralize the purchase of commercial computing products to improve commonality and interoperability between operational forces, according to a pre-solicitation notice issued Tuesday.
Commercial computing includes off-the-shelf commercial items, components, non-development items, customizable sustainment strategies, ongoing technology upgrades, and non-personal services.
Army Contracts Command’s Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland plans to launch a full, open competition for the CHS-6 contract, which has a four-year base term and two three-year option periods.
In August 2018, General dynamics (NYSE: GD) won the five-year potential, $3.9 billion CHS 5th generation contract.
