ENCORE II - RLM Communications, Inc.Agency: Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA)

Prime Contract: HC1028-08-D-XXXX

Value: $12.2 B

PoP End: 31 May 2018 (thru Option Period 5)


Multiple large and small businesses are fulfilling DISA’s requirement for Encore Information Technology Solutions.


DISA is an integral component in the development of the Global Information Grid (GIG), a network-centric environment required to achieve information superiority. The GIG is the globally-interconnected, end-to-end set of information capabilities, associated processes, and personnel to manage and provide information on demand to warfighters, policy makers and supporting personnel. It will enhance combat power through greatly increased battlespace awareness, improved ability to employ weapons beyond line-of-sight, employment of massed effects instead of massed forces and reduced decision cycles. It will also contribute to the success of non-combat military operations. Unique user data, information and user applications are not considered part of the GIG, but can also be accommodated under the contract (i.e., support for other Federal agencies). The emerging revolution in DoD’s business affairs requires a distributed approach to conducting day-to-day operations that the contract can provide.


The contractor shall provide IT solutions for activities throughout all operating levels of all customer organizations in support of all functional requirements including Command and Control, Intelligence, and Mission support areas, and to all elements of the GIG. The contractor shall furnish all personnel, products, materials, facilities, travel, services and other items needed to satisfy the worldwide development, deployment, operation, maintenance and sustainment requirements of DISA’s customers. IT solutions exist within the scope of the 18 task areas of this contract.
