The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Office of Procurement Operations, Science and Technology Acquisition Division proposes to award an extension to DHS indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ) Contract HSHQDC-09-D-00001 (the "Contract" or the "ID/IQ Contract") on the basis of other than full and open competition on behalf of the DHS Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) using the authority of the clause at Federal Acquisition Regulation 52.217-8 "Option to Extend Services."

Pursuant to the procedures and policies at FAR 35.017, DHS S&T intends to award an extension to the current ID/IQ Contract for the operation of the Homeland Security Systems Engineering and Development Institute (HSSEDI) to the MITRE Corporation, 7515 Colshire Drive, McLean, VA 22102-7539. This action will maintain the unique and essential engineering, research, and development capabilities provided by the MITRE Corporation under the HSSEDI.

Under the proposed extension, MITRE Corporation will continue to manage and operate the HSSEDI under incumbent Contract HSHQDC-09-D-00001. The HSSEDI is a Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) that provides technical and integration expertise to the DHS program leadership as a trusted agent, particularly in the evolution of the most complex and critical homeland security programs.
