Vectrus wins communications re-compete worth nearly $12 million
Vectrus Systems Corporation, a Colorado Springs, CO-based, wholly-owned subsidiary of Vectrus, Inc., announced on April 20 that it has been awarded a telecommunications contract for the U.S. Air Forces in Europe (USAFE) worth nearly $12 million. The newly named Enterprise Legacy Voice and Information System (ELVIS) contract, a re-compete of the USAFE Communications Support Contract (UCSC), was awarded by the U.S. Air Force Installation Contracting Agency (AFICA), Ramstein AB, Germany, and includes base and option periods that will run from October 2016 through March 2021.
“We are pleased to be selected as the ELVIS provider and look forward to continuing our nearly 20 year relationship with Air Force communications customers,” said Ken Hunzeker, CEO of Vectrus. “Our customers at strategic locations in Europe and Asia rely on Vectrus not only for facilities and infrastructure support services, but IT and network solutions as well. We plan to leverage our existing geographic footprint in order to expand our IT and network services business while providing more value to our customers.”
The contract provides for integrated and reliable command and control, intelligence, and deployable communications support to manned and unmanned Air Force sites in Belgium, Germany, United Kingdom and Turkey. The work includes such tasks as operations and maintenance for secret and non-secure Internet protocol router networks (SIPRNet/NIPRNet), local area network and communications security administration, telephone maintenance, Armed Forces Network support, and command and control switching system services.
“Winning the ELVIS re-compete is demonstrative of our ability to offer customers valuable IT and network solutions at a compelling price, and we look forward to building on this success,” said Chico Moline, Vectrus vice president for IT and Network Communication Services. “We are looking forward to extending our great relationship with our USAFE customer by providing timely and affordable secure communications and IT support for their critical missions in the region.”
