DIA awards Enhanced Solutions for the IT Enterprise contract

DIA 112The Defense Intelligence Agency announced on July 17 that it has awarded an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ), multiple-award contract to 25 large businesses and 25 small businesses to support information technology requirements across the defense intelligence enterprise and the greater intelligence community.

The Enhanced Solutions for the Information Technology Enterprise (E-SITE) contract vehicle has the potential to reach a combined ceiling of up to $6 billion. The E-SITE contract is the second in a series of DIA IT enterprise IDIQ vehicles, and is a follow-on and expansion of the Solutions for Information Technology Enterprise IDIQ contract that expired in May. Work will be performed worldwide with an expected completion date of July 16, 2020.

The E-SITE contract is designed to enable streamlined execution, simplify purchase requests, standardize acquisition documentation, improve enterprise program management for customers, provide better reporting capability, improve contracting performance and data integrity and make the agency’s overall IT acquisition processes more efficient. DIA named Phyllis Wright as the E-SITE program manager and Esther Woods as the E-SITE contracting officer.

DIA released a draft solicitation May 13, 2013, followed by an Industry Day held Oct. 30, 2013. The final solicitation was released March 18, 2014. The E-SITE contract vehicle was solicited on the basis of full and open competition with a number of awards to be reserved for small business, and 77 proposals were received. After conducting a thorough evaluation based on the request for proposal criteria, contracts were awarded to the following large and small businesses.
