This contract vehicle is mandatory for the purchase of netcentric products for Air Force customers. This contract vehicle will provide for commercially available off-the-shelf products to support the Internet Protocol Network and will include the following categories of netcentric products and associated support worldwide: networking equipment, servers/storage, peripherals, multimedia, software (not included on other enterprise licenses), and identity management/biometric hardware and associated software. Because this is an ID/IQ, the location of performance is not known at this time and will be cited on individual delivery orders. Generally, work will be performed at Air Force facilities. The period of performance is six years. The ordering period is a three year basic period with three one-year option periods if exercised. This was a competitive acquisition; offers were solicited electronically through FedBizOps and 26 offers were received. An obligation of $2,500 will be issued to each of the awardees using fiscal 2013 Operations and Maintenance funds. This is not a multiyear contract. The Air Force originally awarded eight ID/IQ contracts under NETCENTS-2 products on April 19, 2013. On May 13, 2013, the Air Force advised the General Accountability Office that, as necessary, it would reevaluate technical proposals with an emphasis on Trade Agreement Act compliance; amend the solicitation; hold limited discussions; issue another request for final proposal revisions; and make new contract awards. During the re-evaluation of the technical proposals, it became apparent that it was not necessary to amend the solicitation, hold discussions or issue another request for final proposals. The Air Force then determined that in addition to the initial eight contract awards, that eight additional contracts would be awarded based on the last proposals received prior to the award on April 19. The contract ceiling for NETCENTS-2 Products remains the same at $6,900,000,000 firm-fixed-price for all 16 contracts. NETCENTS-2 is a set of five categories of contract capabilities spanning Netcentric Products, Network Operations and Infrastructure Solutions, Applications Services, Enterprise Integration and Service Management, and Information Technology Professional Services.

The ordering period concludes five years after the effective date of the contract. This award is the result of a competitive acquisition.
