We at OrangeSlices AI believe in the need for more and better-informed competition, so provided below are a few of the 1) opportunity details provided by the requestor; 2) some key points of contact; 3) related pursuit/capture data; and 4) when possible, projected odds of this contract going back to the incumbent.  

Competitive Details (if known): 

  • Funding Agency: DOD / Defense Health Agency 
  • Incumbent: Data Computer Corporation of America (DCCA)  
  • Contract Vehicle: This was last competed as a SB Set-Aside action on Alliant Small Business.  
  • Expected Competition Date: Fiscal Year 2023 – date tbd  
  • Contract Details and Spend to Date for Award ID HT940219F0005 

Scope: The predecessor 5-year contract was put in place to provide technical support services to the Defense Health Agency’s (DHA) E-Commerce System (ECS). This contract is intended to provide “vital IT and engineering support for ECS. This support includes engineering management, sustainment engineering, enhancement engineering, change and modernization engineering, and Risk Management Framework (RMF) support across multiple networks, applications and data”

If re-competed as a small business set-aside action, it appears that DCCA, now a large business under many NAICS codes, will not be eligible to compete as a small business.
