AIS has been awarded the Agile Cyber Technology 3 (ACT 3) contract, a $950 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract for technical documentation, technical reports, software and hardware. AIS is one of five companies that has received this award from the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) located at the Griffiss Business and Technology Park in Rome, New York.
The IDIQ contract provides a mechanism for any federal government department or agency to award a contract to AIS in a simple, expedited manner, with a ceiling totaling $950 million.
“The ACT program has been transformational for AIS, AFRL and the warfighters who are benefiting from the technologies it has yielded,” said Salvatore Paladino, Director of Account Management at AIS. “AIS has had tremendous opportunities to transition its cyber capabilities into operational use under previous ACT awards. The ACT 3 award is very exciting and puts us in a position to continue delivering exceptional solutions and to further strengthen partnerships with AFRL and its partnering combatant commands.”
This contract will contribute to the Air Force and partner organizations’ cyber missions through the development and integration of exceedingly innovative cyber solutions. Work for this competitive acquisition will be performed in Rome, New York. AFRL is the contracting activity.
“This exciting partnership between the Air Force and AIS to conduct important work in cybersecurity will enhance both our national defense and the regional economy,” said U.S. Senator Charles Schumer. “Together, the workforces at AIS and Rome Lab will blend their expertise to deliver real results in developing our nation’s cybersecurity infrastructure. I will continue to do all I can to bring more federal work – and more jobs – to the Mohawk Valley through partnerships like these.”
“This is a well-deserved award for AIS and I know it will capitalize on this opportunity to provide AFRL with innovative cyber solutions,” said Oneida County Executive Anthony J. Picente Jr. “Oneida County continues to thrive as a hub for world-class technology companies that are securing our nation.”
“AIS has been a leader in cybersecurity since its inception,” said Rome Mayor Jacqueline M. Izzo. “The success of this locally grown company is further exemplified with the award of the ACT 3 contract, and it strengthens the company’s strategic position to deliver technical reports, hardware and software as only one of five companies to receive this designation. With a contract ceiling of $950 million it will allow AIS to provide cyber and information technology solutions to the Air Force. We are proud that the Griffiss Business and Technology Park is the headquarters for this innovative company.”
