Contracting for training services is about to get a lot more complicated for U.S. Army commands.
For most of the past decade, the Army’s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI) has had “a single button to push” to acquire training services as simple as basic maintenance and as elaborate as exercise planning: the mega-contract vehicle known as Warfighter FOCUS (WFF). Inked in 2007, it’s an $11.2 billion program that empowered prime contractor Raytheon to divvy up task work among some 180 large and small subcontractors, including General Dynamics Information Technology, Engility, among others. WFF has already executed contracts worth about $10.3 billion, leaving about $900 million to carry the program for the next year. But time is running out: WFF will be shut down after Oct. 31, 2017. Task orders awarded before that date may extend for an additional year.
