Up to $1.5B to 4 Firms for US SOCOM Battlestaff Support

The US Special Operations Command (US SOCOM) awarded 4 indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contracts for the Global Battlestaff and Program Support Services (GBPS) program. The 4 contracts have a maximum value of $1.5 billion. 

Under the GBPS contracts, the contractors will provide personnel, equipment, tools, materials, supervision, and other items necessary to support a broad range of US SOCOM mission areas.

The GBPS contracts are follow-on to the more narrowly focused acquisition, logistics, management, and business operations support (ALMBOS) contracts, which were earlier awarded to Jacobs and Gemini Industries and expired on April 30/10. In response to the GBPS RFP [pdf], Gemini filed a protest with the GAO, but the agency denied the protest (solicitation number: H92222-09-R-0034) on April 29/10.

The winners of the GBPS contracts are:
  • CACI-WGI in Chantilly, VA (H92222-10-D-0016);
  • SRA International in Fairfax, VA (H92222-10-D-0017);
  • Jacobs Technology in Tampa, FL (H92222-10-D-0018); and
  • Booz Allen Hamilton, McLean, VA (H92222-10-D-0019).
Under the contracts, the companies will compete for task orders to provide global, non-personal services unique to special operation forces and intellectual capital to assist with day-to-day business operations. They will also compete to provide subject matter expertise in the following areas:
  • time sensitive planning;
  • interagency support;
  • intelligence operations;
  • military planning;
  • intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance program analysis;
  • biometrics, socio-cultural analysis, geospatial analysis, signals intelligence, and human terrain initiatives with ISR support;
  • administrative support;
  • public affairs;
  • training;
  • accounting;
  • budgeting;
  • joint planning, budget and resource management;
  • readiness planning and reporting;
  • personnel reporting;
  • acquisition and life cycle program management;
  • procurement support;
  • engineering support including research, development, science, technology, and systems engineering;
  • graphics support and other business for USSOCOM.
The anticipated period of performance is a 3-year base period with one 2-year option period, for a total contract period of performance not to exceed 5 years. The place of performance is multiple locations in the United States and overseas.
