Additional Analysis

This MHS EITS GSP vehicle serves as a small business counterpart to the $2.0 billion Enterprise Services IT Integrator BPA awarded to Peraton in 2021.  the new vehicle consolidated requirements from over 100 predecessor contracts. 

This vehicle will potentially be a major conduit for IT work at the DHA, particularly for small businesses.  In fiscal year 2022 DHA awarded approximately $1.8 billion in prime awards through NAICS 541513 (used for this vehicle) and other closely related NAICS.  Of which, approximately $900 million was obligated with small business or other (primarily 8(a)) set-asides.  Given the potential $240 million / year value of MSH IETS GSP vehicle (plus the additional value of Peraton's vehicle), access as a subcontractor will be important for IT companies looking to compete in DHA.
