  • Target 80 Awards: 48 Remain for NETOPS Small Business, NETOPS F&O, and ITPS.

    According to NETCENTSII PMO Gerry Smothers at Feburary’s “Straight Talk About NETCENTSII” briefing when discussing the number of awards column in a ‘NETCENTS In A Nutshell” slide he displayed, “If you do the math and think fast-forward, I think it wouldn’t be unreasonable to have eighty (80) of you folks on these contracts.”

    NETCENTS-2 NETCENTSII Awards Remaining

    So, Hypothetical Scenario #1 assumes the long delayed ITPS contract will eventually be competed as it is a Small Business category contract and that both NETOPS contracts competitions will be awarded. This scenario also assumes the Air Force awards to substantially all Products contract submitters as a timely resolution to the ongoing protests.

    NETCENTS-2 NETCENTSII Awards Remaining

    Hypothetical Scenario #2 (low probability) recognizes that the current resource/staffing issues are not resolved due to Sequestration pressures and the NETOPS Full & Open contract is eliminated with a slightly expanded NETOPS Small Business award base. Even with the expanded number of Products awards, the total award count drops below the eighty (80) discussed by the NETCENTSII PMO.

    NETCENTS-2 NETCENTSII Awards Remaining

    The analysis above is purely hypothetical with no input or information from any Air Force source. It’s as likely to completely dead wrong as it is to be right.
