The new contract will shift the work from a large business to an 8(a) small business.
Space Command has unveiled the final solicitation for a new potential 10-year, $480 million small business contract to support its satellite control network.
Known by the acronym STORMS, the Satellite Control Network Tracking Station Operations Remote Site and Mission Partner Support contract will be an 8(a) set-aside program. That means current incumbent CACI International cannot bid on work.
CACI holds the contract through its acquisition of the former L-3 national security solutions business in 2016.
The contract was known at the time as CAMMO, or the Consolidated Air Force Satellite Control Network Modifications and Maintenance Operations contract. That contract expires in May 2024 and has brought approximately $537 million in total obligations to CACI, according to GovTribe data.
