First STARS II Contract Announcement
In August 2011, NCC was awarded a GSA 8(a) STARS II Governmentwide Acquisition Contract (GWAC), the result of a lengthy consideration process undertaken by the government to determine qualified suppliers of technology and computer-related services. We are pleased to announce that in May 2012 we were awarded our first contract under STARS II, for which we will provide AV maintenance services to the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD).
After successful support of major Department of Defense events, including the Pentagon’s September 11 Observance Ceremonies and May 9 Spirit of Service Ceremony, our Audiovisual and Technology Solutions Division will continue to build on the relationship between NCC and the DoD through this new contract with OSD. We will provide on-call maintenance, preventative maintenance, and AV system refresher training for the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy’s Executive Conference Room.
As an SBA-certified 8(a) small business, NCC appreciates the opportunity provided by a contract vehicle such as STARS II. It facilitates government use of small businesses for contracting work by ensuring their services have been vetted as qualified and competitive, while enabling the companies awarded a contract to benefit from this status for a base period of five years, with one subsequent five-year option. We look forward to future awards through GSA 8(a) STARS II in our initial five-year contract and are dedicated to proving our value so we can extend this unique opportunity to serve the government in the technology sector for the full 10-year period of the contract.
