Serco announced yesterday that it won a contract to maintain the full operation and technical support services of the Active Army Strength Forecaster (A2SF) System. The new five-year contract has a one-year base period and four one-year valued at $9 million.
Serco will combine sophisticated algorithms and models to provide the U.S. Army accurate forecasting information, as well as deliver operations and maintenance support, data conversion, information assurance and security and training solutions to support the A2SF System.
Bill Fischer, Vice President of Serco’s Strategy, Learning & Human Capital unit praised the “new mission-critical contract win” as an example of the company’s continued support of the U.S. Army.
“We have assembled a team of technical experts to support the Army, and we are committed to helping them meet established government service requirements,” he said.
The A2SF System provides the U.S. Army with a monthly seven-year strength forecast of political and military climate changes based on wartime requirements, budget constraints, and military compensation entitlements. The forecasts are used to support the seven-year budget process, policy decisions by senior leadership, congressional inquiries, and personnel management decisions.
Serco was awarded the contract under the GSA Alliant contract vehicle, which supports Federal government operational requirements for standardized technology and application service components.
