FY 2024 is around the corner and forward-looking Department of Homeland Security focused companies are already knee deep into key 2024 pursuits, with the recompete of this multi-year US Citizenship & Immigration Services contract, seeking services that range from Cloud Engineering & DevSecOps to Platform & Network Engineering, Platform Architecture and Unified Communications, drawing a lot of early interest.

The 4-year Architecture Engineering Services contract was last awarded in January of 2021 to ManTech as a task on GSA Alliant 2 with a total expected contract value of $82M. Contract Award Details and Soen to Date can be found here. Known key subcontractors on this effort include PRISM, ALTA IT Services, and VTIER Systems 

The next generation of the Architecture Engineering Services contract (AES v 2) is expected to be 5 years in duration. The latest word is that DHS is planning to compete this task unrestricted on the Alliant 2 GWAC, with the solicitation expected to be released in mid FY 2024. There is no indication that DHS would consider splitting this contract up, but we do expect small business to be working hard to, at a minimum, influence how much work will be subcontract to small business partners. More will be shared here as it is made available.
