Government Contract Awardee Names HP Solutions to Its Team PDF Print E-mail

Partnership Is Gearing Up for Billions of Dollars in Government Contracts

A New Jersey firm that recently won one of seven huge government contracts has named HP Solutions, Inc. to its partnership of companies.  The partnership is almost certain to win government contracts worth billions of dollars for services ranging from technology training to manufacturing military equipment.

HP Solutions will join prime contractor Adams Communication and Engineering Technology (ACET), based in Eatontown, NJ, which won its first multi-billion dollar Army Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract in May.  In August, ACET was awarded a prime contract on the $16.4 billion dollar Rapid Response Third Generation (R2-3G) multiple award program by the U.S. Army’s Communications and Electronics Command (CECOM).

“HP Solutions is prepared to meet the challenges required to achieve the world-class success demanded of an R2-3G team member,” said Laura Lovell-Scercy, president and CEO of HP Solutions.  “We’re a full-fledged member of a first-class team of large and small businesses capable of satisfying the entire scope of R2-3G performance work statements.”

Other ACET partners include CMX Technologies, GENTEX Corporation and Raytheon.

The U.S. Army created the R2-3G program, now in its third generation, to reduce the difficulty, time and cost of satisfying the operational needs of federal agency customers. R23G delivers industry proposals in seven days, and awards task orders within 19 days of solicitation release. The streamlined task order process supports all federal agencies worldwide.

The ACET partnership was named a government contract awardee in August. According to a federal task order database operated by INPUT, a government contract observer, there are 344 task orders that will expire between this month and January 30, 2011.

The now-expiring, second generation R2 program was responsible for awarding over 1,600 task orders, and obligating nearly $12 billion, in support of more than 1,000 federal program managers.

R2-3G will provide support to the Department of Defense (DOD), other federal agencies, and if authorized by specific legislation, tasks for state and local governments involving anti-terrorism technology and/or services, in technology insertion, system integration/installation, fabrication/prototyping, testing/certification, studies/analyses, logistic support, and training and engineering support, including re-engineering and reverse engineering, for a range of equipment and services.

Membership in the new partnership is the latest in a string of HP Solutions milestones. This year, the firm was selected as one of the “top 100 women-owned businesses” and “top 100 diversity-owned businesses” in New Jersey by DiversityBusiness.com, the nation’s largest organization of diversity-owned businesses.

In August, HP Solutions cosponsored an information-sharing and networking seminar that highlighted approaches companies can use to either maximize their chances of securing federal service contracts or forming partnerships with contractors who do.

The teaming seminar brought together more than 200 officials from the government technology contracting community and executives from small and large firms to hear presentations and network.
