Cubic receives ID/IQ contract, $14.5m task order to support training simulators
Cubic Worldwide Technical Services, Inc., a subsidiary of Cubic Corporation, has been awarded one of eight indefinite-delivery/ indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ) multiple award contracts for Fielded Training Systems Support Services (FTSS). The Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division in Orlando, Florida, awarded the contracts to support over 900 training simulators for the US Navy and Marine Corps, and for other governments under potential Foreign Military Sales.
As part of the FTSS III award, CWTS also received the initial FTSS III Task Order (0001) for operations, maintenance and instructional support for the E-2C training devices at Navy facilities located in Norfolk, Virginia, and Point Mugu, California. Valued at approximately $14.5 million, this task order began in January with a two-month mobilization/phase-in, to be followed with a 55-month period of performance.
Services covered under the ID/IQ include operations and maintenance support, instruction, limited training device modifications, training device relocations, training system management, in-service engineering office support (backup resource to SeaPort-e), spares/product support, and other related trainer support services. The aggregate, not-to-exceed amount for these contemplated multiple award contracts combined is $900 million, and each contractor will be provided a fair opportunity to compete for individual task orders. Work will be performed in various locations inside and outside the continental United States and is expected to be completed in September 2018.
