ViaSat awarded $73M contract extension by U.S. DISA
The U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency, or DISA, extended its contract with ViaSat (VSAT) to continue to provide senior leaders and their support staff with in-flight broadband and connectivity services on senior leader aircraft. As outlined in the original DISA contract, there are two options for extension, and the first was executed on June 1. The contract extension is part of a non-competitive firm-fixed price contract, which focuses on ViaSat providing high-quality broadband and connectivity services, via its global Ku- and Ka-band communications satellite network, to senior leader and VIP aircraft when in-flight. The face value of this contract extension is $19,277,009 funded by FY17 operations and maintenance funding. The total cumulative face value of the contract is $73,217,722. Performance will be primarily at ViaSat's networks operation center and government care centers.
