NES Associates Wins Bid for DISA GSM-ETI Contract

Systems Engineering, Implementation, and Design Services for DISN . . .

ALEXANDRIA, VA – On Dec. 21, 2012, the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) officially awarded NES Associates (NES) a prime contract as part of the Global Information Grid (GIG) Services Management-Engineering, Transition and Implementation (GSM-ETI) program. Over the next five years, NES will provide the systems engineering, implementation and design services in support of the Defense Information System Network (DISN) and associated networking capabilities as part of this indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract.

The GSM-ETI contract will start as a two-year base period, worth $568 million, with a following two-year option and a final option for an additional fifth year. Over the potential five years, the total contract ceiling could move up to, but not exceed, $1.4 billion.

NES assembled a team of DoD networking thought leaders who draw from successful experience running some of the world’s largest networks. The NES team consists of eight companies, including Deloitte, Global Technology Solutions, Harris, Hewlett Packard, Information Innovators Inc., QinetiQ North America and Science Applications International Corporation.

“After three years of pursuing this opportunity, NES is thrilled to have won our bid for the GSM-ETI contract,” said Andy Gomer, CEO of NES. “Through this award, NES will continue working in support of DISA’s critical mission across a worldwide spectrum of operations.”

Since Nov. 2008, NES has worked closely with both DISN Global Solutions (DGS) prime contractors providing support for DOD Base Realignment and Closures (BRAC) and customer support to the United States Air Force, Army and Navy. This experience in network design and implementation will greatly assist in future work on GSM-ETI. In addition, NES personnel have successfully built and optimized two defense agency enterprise networks, one for the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) and one for the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), with a total of 500 sites over 25,000 global users across NIPRNet and SIPRNet. As a result, NES has a comprehensive understanding of the scope of services needed under the GSM-ETI contract.

NES is headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia and provides network engineering and IT services to customers around the globe that depend on highly secure and reliable communication networks. NES specializes in network design and implementation, network performance optimization, network operations, service continuity management, cybersecurity and health care IT services.
