Commerce Dept Taps 5 Small Businesses for $150M Network Equipment Vehicle
The U.S. Commerce Department has awarded positions on a potential five-year, $150 million blanket delivery order to five small businesses for network equipment and maintenance services.
Commerce aims to save up to $25 million in costs over the next five years and centralize its contract award processes through the BDO, the department said in a Wednesday blog post.
Forty-percent of all Commerce Department contracts, or $4 billion total, went to small businesses last year, according to the agency.
Awardees for this new order include:
- Force 3
- Intelligent Decisions
- Iron Bow
- Red River
In a separate announcement, Force 3 said all 12 of the department’s operating units will be able to purchase information technology hardware through the BDO.
