DLA JETS 2.0 could be released as early as Q1 FY23. The estimated award date is set for Q3 FY24.
The Defense Logistics Agency has indicated its desire to recompete its J6 Enterprise Technology Services (JETS) contract with the announced JETS 2.0 acquisition. This is a follow-on to the original JETS contract awarded to 145 companies late in 2016. The resulting program is expected to be in the $6 billion range and support a like number of contracts.
DLA JETS 2.0 Task Areas
The work will primarily be performed under NAICS 541519 Other Computer Related Services with a size standard of $30 million. The goal of the acquisition is to support technology services across the DLA enterprise. This support can be expected to span more than 50 different systems, programs, and initiatives under the resulting IDIQ contract. The resulting task orders are expected to be broken down across 13 task areas. Some of these task areas are:
- TASK AREA 1: Network and Telecommunication Services
- TASK AREA 2: Technology Services
- TASK AREA 3: Enterprise Service Delivery (ESD)
- TASK AREA 5: Lifecycle Program Support Services
- TASK AREA 6: Cyber Security Support Services
- TASK AREA 7: Program/Project Management Support
- TASK AREA 10: Technical Support
The DLA JETS 2.0 task orders are expected for a variety of CONUS and OCONUS locations and may be issued within the 5-year base period with the total ordering period not to exceed 10 years from the date of the award.
The solicitation could be released as early as the next month or so, but the rational bet would be for it to take place sometime after the start of the new year, probably late within the first quarter. It’s unclear if a draft RFP might be released.
Type of Solicitation
Bucking the latest trends for “evidence-based responses” (ala CIO-SP4, Polaris, and OASIS+), this one appears to be the more typical solicitation response we are all familiar with. Expect there to be at least two volumes (Technical and Past Performance) with the potential for a separate management volume. It’s unknown if pricing will be included or if the pricing competition will take place at the task order level.
