MORRISTOWN, N.J. — The Louis Berger Group, Inc. (Louis Berger) has won a $36 million contract to help rebuild the Satala Power Plant in Pago Pago, American Samoa, destroyed in the September 2009 tsunami. The contract, awarded by the American Samoa Power Authority (ASPA), is part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s three-tiered approach to replacing the plant, which previously provided 60 percent of Pago Pago’s power generation capacity and served approximately 30,000 customers. Louis Berger will provide the engineering and plant design, equipment procurement, and installation and commissioning of the power generation and ancillary electrical equipment. The major equipment will include seven primary generators, two emergency back-up generators, switchgear assembly, two station transformers and motor control centers. The newly installed equipment at the completed plant will contain a capacity of 24.5 megawatts. "The Louis Berger Group has designed, installed, operated and maintained power generation and distributed power systems at more than 15 locations on four continents over the past five years,” said Ray Mardini, P.E., associate vice president of Louis Berger’s Global Operations Energy Systems business unit. “Our proven experience as a turn-key power projects and equipment provider will enable us to successfully complete this extremely important project in the South Pacific for the people of American Samoa.” Louis Berger’s assignment is expected to reduce ASPA’s total plant lifecycle costs by supplying highly fuel-efficient, low-maintenance power generation equipment. The new equipment, combined with the technical support and training that Louis Berger will provide, will enable ASPA to reliably operate the power plant for years to come.

GSA Makes the Grade on Small Business Efforts Agency receives top marks on measured small business goals July 2, 2013
WASHINGTON – The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) continues to exceed small business goals according to the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) recently released small business scorecard for Fiscal Year 2012. This marks the second year in a row that GSA has received an A+ on the SBA scorecard. The grading system is part of SBA’s government wide small business scorecard, which measures how well each agency performs in reaching their small business and socioeconomic prime contracting and subcontracting goals. Additionally, the scorecard provides accurate and transparent contracting data and reports agency-specific progress. “Expanding opportunities for small businesses is central to delivering the best value for government and the American people,” said Acting Administrator Dan Tangherlini. “The A+ grade is a testament to GSA’s commitment to expand opportunities for the small business community, including businesses owned by veteran, women, minority, and disadvantaged entrepreneurs.” GSA awarded $1.3 billion to small business in Fiscal Year 2012, representing nearly 40 percent of eligible contract dollars, exceeding the agency's 30 percent goal and all prime contracting subcategory goals. Over the last couple months, GSA has doubled down on its efforts to expand opportunities for small businesses by hosting critical small business training and matchmaking sessions around the country, strategic sourcing efforts that support small businesses while saving the government $200 million on purchases of common office supplies through strategic sourcing, and awarding more than $21 million to small business across the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. To date, GSA’s Rocky Mountain region has awarded $56 million to small businesses and since October 2012, more than $61 million in new contracts have been awarded to small businesses within the Pacific Rim Region. Innovative small business outreach efforts helped the agency exceed its goals. The Office of Small Business Utilization broadened outreach to small businesses, launching a new workshop series to help business owners learn more about federal opportunities.

US Navy, Boeing Sign $2 Billion Order for Poseidon Aircraft Plans call for 117 P-8A aircraft, which are based on Boeing 737-800 August 1, 2013
SEATTLE – The U.S. Navy recently awarded Boeing a $1.98 billion contract for 13 additional P-8A Poseidon aircraft, continuing the modernization of U.S. maritime patrol capabilities that will ultimately involve more than 100 P-8As. The contract includes long-lead funding previously approved by the Navy. The Navy has now ordered 37 of the 117 P-8As it is expected to buy. To date, 10 have been delivered. Based on the Boeing Next-Generation 737-800 commercial airplane, the P-8 provides anti-submarine, anti-surface warfare as well as intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities. The P-8 is replacing the Navy’s P-3 aircraft. “We’re on budget and on schedule and the Navy will stand up initial operational capability of this transformational aircraft by the end of the year,” said Rick Heerdt, Boeing vice president and P-8 program manager. “This new contract award will continue to deliver aircraft to the fleet squadrons scheduled to receive their initial batch of P-8As on cost, schedule and performance parameters in accordance with the approved Acquisition Program Baseline,” said Capt. Scott Dillon, the Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance Aircraft Program Office’s program manager. Boeing assembles P-8As in the same facility where it builds all its 737s. The Poseidon team uses a first-in-industry in-line process that takes advantage of the efficiencies in the Next-Generation 737 production system. After initial assembly, the P-8A aircraft enter a separate mission system installation and checkout facility for final modifications and testing.
Boeing Delivers First Next-Generation 737-800 to Iraqi Airways Delivery marks milestone in Boeing's efforts to help rebuild Iraq's aviation infrastructure August 12, 2013
SEATTLE – Boeing delivered a Next-Generation 737-800 to Iraqi Airways, the first of 30 that the airline ordered in 2008, marking a milestone in its relationship with the airline. "The Next-Generation 737-800 will play a key role in helping us modernize our fleet and integrate into the regional and international commercial aviation system," said H.E. Hadi Al Ameri, Iraq's Minister of Transportation. "Boeing has played a pivotal role in our growth plan and the Next-Generation 737 has earned an excellent reputation for reliability and operational efficiency." With this delivery, Iraqi Airways currently has 39 Boeing airplanes on order, including 29 NextGeneration 737-800s and 10 787 Dreamliners. "This is a historic milestone in our relationship with Iraqi Airways and a testament to the value that the Next-Generation 737-800 will bring to the airline's fleet," said Marty Bentrott, vice president for Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, Middle East, Russia and Central Asia. "Boeing is proud of the confidence that Iraqi Airways has in its products and we look forward to further strengthening this relationship to fulfill the airline's future commercial aviation needs." The Next-Generation 737 family has won orders for more than 6,500 airplanes, while the 737 family has surpassed 11,000 orders to date. Boeing has delivered more than 7,600 737s – including more than 4,500 Next-Generation 737s – and currently has more than 3,400 unfilled orders for 737s (through July 2013).

OASIS Program Announces Extended Opportunities for Properly Registered Small Business Contractors August 4, 2013
Orlando, FL – The GSA is expecting big things with their new contract vehicle, the OASIS Program (One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services). The OASIS Program is projected to award several billion dollars worth of contracts to both large and small businesses through its selective process. The program is expected to generate up to $12 billion in indefinite-delivery and indefinite-quantity government contracts over the course of 10 years. Just recently, the GSA has announced more details about the program itself. The OASIS Program will now be made up of two different parts: a small business set-aside known as OASIS SB as well as a full and open, unrestricted procurement. According to an online GSA poll, the OASIS Program will choose two different names for both the large business and the small business OASIS Programs. OASIS officials like Jim Ghiloni, Director of the OASIS Program, are telling small businesses not to give up, even if they have been rejected for the program. The OASIS Program is not designed to lock out rejected vendors or keep selected vendors on the program. Ghiloni went on to state, “This program is not going to lock down in 10 years. There will be fluidity in the contractor pool over time. And if you’re not qualified when the RFP comes out, it doesn’t mean you’re locked out for 10 years.” However, before a business can start bidding on the available OASIS contracts that are set for release this month, they must first be registered in System for Award Management (SAM). Most businesses find the SAM registration difficult and tedious. It can take weeks to fill out the registration if a business is not familiar with the registration process. That is why businesses all over the country have been hiring third party registration firms to conduct the SAM registration for their business.US Federal Contractor Registration (USFCR) is the world’s largest third party registration firm that registers businesses in System for Award Management and prepares businesses for the qualifying process of the OASIS Program. USFCR’s staff of government contracting professionals will register a business in SAM, evaluate a business’s federal market, and connect that business to federal buyers around the nation. Their innovative marketing strategies have been proven to work by tens of thousands of contractors who use their service. US Federal Contractor Registration is a third party registration firm that has helped thousands of businesses complete their registration and bid on contracts. US Federal Contractor Registration pairs businesses with a dedicated case manager who helps them every step of the way, from initial registration to bidding on contracts.

CACI International Inc
CACI Awarded $425 Million in Previously Unannounced Intelligence Contracts August 1, 2013
ARLINGTON, Va. â€“ CACI International Inc (NYSE: CACI) announced today that it has been awarded more than $425 million in previously unannounced contracts with federal government clients in the Intelligence Community during the company's Fiscal Year 2013, which ended June 30, 2013. For these awards, CACI is delivering tailored information solutions and services to national-level intelligence organizations safeguarding our nation's security. These contracts advance the company's position in its high-volume intelligence market area. This work underscores CACI's commitment to intelligence as a core capability and market area of continuing growth and investment. CACI is providing unique expertise, technical innovation, and in-demand services across multiple functional intelligence disciplines. While the details of the programs are classified, these efforts support several agencies and deliver capabilities in such areas as intelligence analysis, enterprise network operations, counter intelligence support, and cyber analytics. John Mengucci, CACI's Chief Operating Officer and President of U.S. Operations, said, "CACI sustains a thriving Intelligence Community business by delivering outstanding performance on our contracts and providing innovative solutions that enable our customers to keep pace with emerging national threats. Our solutions and services help fuel efficiency and effectiveness in critical intelligence mission areas." According to CACI President and Chief Executive Officer Ken Asbury, "Our many contracts supporting the Intelligence Community recognize the power and relevance of CACI's integrated intelligence capabilities within the most demanding and sensitive security domains. CACI's intelligence business continues to be an important part of our focus on providing mission-critical solutions that help safeguard and defend America's national security."
CACI International Inc. CACI Overview CACI provides information solutions and services in support of national security missions and government transformation for Intelligence, Defense, and Federal Civilian clients.
Doing Business With CACI CACI is an information technology solutions provider. Small business subcontracting requirements principally arise under our U.S. government contracts for large scale software design and development, enterprise business process improvement, intelligent document management, information assurance, network management and logistics engineering services. CACI subcontracts are generally focused on delivery of a specific end product. They are not simply to provide personnel to supplement CACI's or its clients' staffs or to furnish equipment or software solely as a distributor or reseller. Many of our federal contracts require CACI to have identified our small business subcontracting partners and their roles in advance of the prime contract award. Accordingly, CACI rarely has a large volume of unfilled requirements for which we have not yet identified qualified small bu siness sources at competitive prices.
Subcontracting Guidelines 他 CACI does not regularly procure or sell to others high volume, generic staff augmentation, leased personnel or contract programming services. When a particular skill set is required beyond existing CACI resources the responsible Program Managers in our operating groups identify and qualify subcontractor sources for limited term, specialized staff supplementation. Our acquisition personnel do not centrally manage these requirements - they are highly decentralized and project specific. 他 Our contract operations do not require us to routinely purchase standard commodities in large quantities for resale or to regularly acquire, install or maintain ADP or telecommunications equipment of any brand name. When required, such items, including standard office supplies, are usually acquired directly from the manufacturer. 他 We do not design, manufacture, assemble or construct mechanical equipment, production electronics, machinery, weapons platforms or building structures of any kind.

Serco Group PLC (Serco), the international service company, confirms the award of a new contract by the United States Department of Health and Human Services' Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to provide processing support for new health benefit exchanges. Serco will provide and manage labour to review, verify and process applications on a 'cost-plus-fixed-fee' basis. The contract, which is now in effect, has a one-year base period valued at approximately $115m with further four one-year options. Including all potential option periods and optional tasks, the contract has a potential total contract value of approximately $1.25bn. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act introduced a series of consumer choices and insurance competition through a Federally Facilitated Marketplace (FFM). The exchange is a state-based marketplace that accepts applications and determines eligibility for applications, as well as participation and enrolment into affordable health insurance and insurance affordability programs. The Affordable Care Act directs CMS to establish and operate marketplaces for states that do not elect to establish their own. Serco will manage approximately 1,500 staff in the US that will support CMS with the routing, automated processing, reviewing, and troubleshooting of applications submitted for enrolment into a Qualified Health Plan. Serco will also provide records management and verification support. The contract award builds on Serco's strong capabilities in records management and processing for the US Government, which include the classifying of patent applications for the US Patent and Trademark Office and the processing of visa applications at the US Department of State's National Visa Center. Christopher Hyman, Chief Executive of Serco Group plc, said: "We are delighted to be awarded such an important contract to support the Affordable Care Act in the United States and our Americas division looks forward to working with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services."
Rockwell Collins, NASA Team to Develop New Analysis Tools to Verify Safety of Flight Critical Systems Aug. 7, 2013
Cedar Rapids, Iowa – The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has selected Rockwell Collins to develop new software analysis tools for verifying the safety of flight critical systems for future commercial aircraft. Under the terms of the one-year contract, Rockwell Collins will develop a set of software analysis tools, conduct demonstrations, and make recommendations to NASA. Avionics systems are increasing in complexity as new capabilities are added that reduce carbon emissions, increase navigation performance and prepare for the FAA NextGen airspace initiative. This increased complexity brings the need for new methods for analysis that will assure that the system will operate safely under all conditions. “Complex avionics systems can literally have billions of modes and states,” said John Borghese, vice president of the Rockwell Collins Advanced Technology Center. “By incorporating formal mathematical verification – also known as Formal Methods - we can detect and remove software bugs and security vulnerabilities early in the development process when it’s less costly to correct errors.” Rockwell Collins leadership in Formal Methods began with basic research into the methodology and tool development over a decade ago. Recently Rockwell Collins was awarded a $16 million Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) program, High-Assurance Cyber Military Systems (HACMS), to develop new Formal Methods tools to provide cyber security solutions for unmanned air vehicles.

Unconventional Resources Technology August 12-14: Denver, CO URTeC is the integrated event for oil & gas asset teams. The technical program covers 20 themes related to the way oil & gas companies involved in unconventionals do business today. The conference lineup includes 340 technical presentations – including oral and ePapers, 7 interactive panels taking an in-depth look at everything from technologies transforming the future to government regulations, and more. URTeC was developed with an industry advisory group — professionals managing how wells are drilled and how plays are developed every day. Representatives from Anadarko, Apache, Chesapeake, ConocoPhillips, Devon, ExxonMobil-XTO, Schlumberger, Shell, SM Energy, Statoil and others spoke about the importance of geologists, geophysicists, engineers and business managers working together — and understanding each other. They encouraged SPE, AAPG and SEG to collaborate on URTeC to facilitate that learning and understanding. Unlike existing events, URTeC won’t just drill vertically into discipline-specific silos, but will cut horizontally through all of the technologies and business practices essential to successful field development. URTeC will be held in Halls D, E, and F at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver — a city boasting more than 800 oil & gas industry companies. SPE, AAPG and SEG have all recorded some of their highest numbers for annual conventions when held in Denver thanks to both the local industry and Denver’s status as a premier destination.

After the amazing keynote of John Sculley, past Apple CEO weeks back at this event in Miami, we thought the only way to even come close to finding someone of a similar caliber was to present the cofounder of Apple to our beloved ITEXPO community. Companies of all sizes and representing all sectors of the IP Communications industry, including Service Providers, Carriers, Enterprises, Government Agencies, Resellers, Manufacturers, Developers, and more will be represented at the expo.

SOA, Semantics, & Data Science September 10-11: Springfield, Virginia
Federal organizations are racing to capitalize on social, mobile and cloud computing trends to provide solutions for their agency mission needs. At the same time there is great pressure to spend less while improving capability, service, cost and flexibility. This event is an open knowledge exchange forum for communities of practice in Cloud, SOA, Semantics, and Data Science. It brings together thought leaders and experts from the federal and business communities to continue the conversation around best practices in advancing SOA, semantic technology and data science within the Cloud construct. The event builds on the successes of two previous events: the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) e-Government Conferences and the Department of Defense SOA and Semantic Technology Conferences. This event is focused on SOA, Cloud Computing, Semantics Technology and Data Analytics. SOA uses data as a service, which in turn requires dealing effectively with semantics. Data science is used to process and analyze the data for those semantics to extract information. Given the recent pronouncement by Dominic Sale, OMB (invited Keynote) that "all content is data", this conference is especially timely and focused. Presenters and panelists will examine the benefits of governance frameworks and approaches Federal agencies are pursuing to increase the maturity and efficiency of their SOA, Cloud, Semantic Technology and Data Science.

International Common Criteria Conference September 10-12: Orlando, Florida FBC invites you to exhibit at the International Common Criteria Conference (ICCC) taking place in Orlando, Florida. This is the first time since 2000 that the ICCC is taking place in the U.S. The Conference has become the main marketing and meeting opportunity for all those involved in the specification, development, evaluation, and validation or certification of IT security. The Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation (aka. Common Criteria) was developed by the governments of Canada, France, Germany, Netherlands, UK, and U.S. in the mid-90â€™s to unify the security evaluation standards existing at this time. By unifying security evaluation criteria, the objective was to avoid re-evaluation of products addressing international markets. An arrangement which outlined the mutual recognition to reduce the need for re-evaluations of Common Criteria certificates was signed in May 2000. In order to support the CC Recognition Arrangement, the CC Management Committee organized the annual International Common Criteria Conference (ICCC). This important event brings together over 400 participants including: Certification Bodies, Evaluation Laboratories, Experts, Policy Makers, and Product Developers interested in the specification, development, evaluation, and certification of IT security.

Sequestration and declining defense budgets make this a challenging time for anyone who sells to the federal government.

This means small businesses, now more than ever, have an opportunity to get their foot in the door or grow their market to help ensure Americaâ€™s defense remains the strongest most innovative defense in the world. NDIA is gathering program managers and other customers from across the military services, Homeland Security, and other federal agencies to talk about actual, upcoming requirements for FY14. Attendance at the National Small Business Conference is mandatory for any small, medium or large-sized business looking to win prime contracts, find good partners for winning teams, and gather business intelligence for the upcoming fiscal year. In addition to talking directly with program managers and other requiring authorities, attendees will hear from government leaders in Homeland Security about cyber security threats to small business and from policy and legislative front line managers who will share how small businesses can get involved in shaping laws, regulations and department policy. Whether youâ€™re a seasoned, well-established contractor or a business looking to join the government contracting world, this Conference is a must-attend event.
