NETCENTSII Contracts Updates
There has been $16.35 Million Total Sales (Obligated) for NetCentric Products contract since award.
Application Services (SB)
Mr. Hunter disclosed total ceiling value for awards to-date but did not provide Total Sales (Obligated) for App Services SB contract.
Enterprise Integration & Service Management (EISM)
For EISM, slides reported $36.6 Million in Total Award value and Total Sales (Estimated Ceiling) in text and graphics respectively.
Application Services (F&O)
Originally awarded in July 2013, there were six (6) protests received. The protests were sustained and Air Force agreed to take Corrective Action and is currently completing award documentation. Awards now expected July 2014.
NETOPS & Infrastructure Solutions (SB)
Awarded in April 2014, there were ten (10) protests received. Five have been dismissed and Air Force response to remaining protests have been submitted to GAO. This suggests the Air Force believes their position is strong and does not need to volunteer Corrective Action.
Mr. Hunter briefed there were $1B in backlog identified but, when asked during Q&A, would not provide any details regarding the claimed backlog.
NETOPS & Infrastructure Solutions (Full & Open)
Air Force announced they will resume the stalled NETOPS Full & Open source selection. They will release an amendment, open discussion, and a later call for Final Proposal Revisions. Mr Hunter briefed an expected award date of Dec 2014 but there’s little chance that date will be met.

In the four years since the first NETCENTSII contract award, only $225.87 Million Ceiling has been awarded of the $24.2 BILLION ceiling.
The vast majority (87%) of these opportunities came from the AFMC of all the participating MAJCOMS.
Of the $226 Million ceiling dollars awarded, only one third (33%) or $76 Million has been Obligated to the awarded companies.
