U.S. SOUTHCOM to Award Lockheed Martin Information Technology Support Services Sole Source Contract for Operation Unified Response Haiti

I just realized that Operation Unified Response Haiti writes acronymically (and yes, I know 'acronymically' is not word) out as O.U.R. Haiti as in "we own it." Well, maybe it is not that drastic, but you just have to love the cute acronyms that are always given to these operations. My personal favorite was Operation Iraqi Liberation or O.I.L. back in 2003. The government quickly changed the mission name to Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Below is a pre-solicitation notice for U.S. SOUTHCOM's desire to contract the Lockheed Martin Corporation for IT Support Services in Haiti.

The US Southern Command SOUTHCOM has an urgent and compelling sole source requirement for Information Technology Support Services in support of Operation Unified Response Haiti. This announcement is for informational purposes only. Any responses to this synopsis will be separately addressed. Operation Unified Response Haiti has been declared a Contingency Operation. These services are required to provide Information Technology Support to personnel performing humanitarian aid operations in Haiti. The Government intends to award a Sole Source contract to Lockheed Martin Corporation, the current provider of Information Technology Support Services at the SOUTHCOM Headquarters in Miami, FL. The Government estimates that approximately 12,320 hours of a mixture of Information Technology Support will be required. Lockheed Martin is providing the current IT Support for ASA/Miami. Lockheed Martin is familiar with SOUTHCOM and Army Signal Activity (ASA) IT configurations, policies, procedures, and regulations. No other provider can perform these additional services without both a substantial duplication of cost and an unacceptable delay. No other provider is capable of providing these services immediately. The period of performance for this effort will be approximately six months.

Inquiries to this announcement should be directed to the Contract Specialist, Christopher Murphy, Army Contracting Command Miami at, telephone 305-437-2669, fax 305-437-2752.
