A GSA spokesman declined to comment on the awards until the conclusion of the protest period. Unsuccessful bidders can file a protest up to 10 days after a debriefing or when the contractor knows the basis of the award.
COMET replaces the CIO Application Maintenance, Enhancements, and Operations (CAMEO) procurement that GSA awarded in 2014 to a host of large and small businesses with a total ceiling of $400 million.
At the same time, GSA also awarded four task orders. While details on what the task orders are exactly for aren’t clear, industry sources confirmed:
Task order No. 1: Hailey’s COMET: Sevatec won to provide services under the previous procurement known as CAMEO. This task order could be worth as much as $150 million.
Task order No. 2: Booz Allen won to provide fleet management group support services. This task order could be worth $76 million.
Task order No. 3: Booz Allen also won to provide cloud services. This was a new contract. This task order could be worth $32 million.
Task order No. 4: Vencore and ITG won to provide support to the Integrated Acquisition Environment (IAE) organization. Vencore’s portion of the task order could be worth $16 million and ITG’s $17 million.
GSA released the solicitation for COMET on June 18 with a goal of creating a multiple award blanket purchase agreement on top of IT schedule 70. GSA said in June it planned to make between 10 and 12 awards with at least 25% of them being set aside for small businesses. The BPA asked vendors to provide a host of IT services, including operations and maintenance, cloud and the continued development and support of the acquisition systems portal called beta.SAM.gov. GSA plans to take a three-step approach to the evaluation of contractors, including an in-person technical challenge. In April, GSA issued the RFP for the first and much smaller part of COMET focused on architecture, engineering and advisory support.
