The major contract has an estimated value of $6.9 billion with a three-year base period of performance from the award date, and three additional one-year options. This contract allows the Air Force to acquire a wide range of standard, interoperable IT products including equipment, servers, software and biometric hardware with associated software.
“Iron Bow is committed to providing innovative data center, collaboration, communications critical biometric solutions and IT services to enable mission assurance for our nation’s defense,” Rene LaVigne, President and CEO of Iron Bow Technologies said. “The NETCENTS-2 contract award will enable Iron Bow to continue providing the best of breed IT necessary to ensure success across the wide spectrum of Air Force operations.”
The original NETCENTS contract vehicle was awarded in 2004 and expires in 2013. NETCENTS-2 is intended to help effectively integrate the disparate, incompatible IT infrastructures found across the Air Force.
According to the company, the contract is expected to bring all IT systems into full compliance with the Air Force’s existing enterprise cyberspace architecture.
Earlier this year, Iron Bow was named to CRN’s annual list of the “Tech Elite 250.”
