FAIRFAX, Va. The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) has chosen global consulting and digital services provider ICF as one of two awardees eligible to compete for scientific and engineering support services under a new indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract.

The Computational and Information Sciences Directorate -- the principal Army organization for basic and applied research in information sciences, network sciences, battlefield environment, and advanced computing and computational sciences --awarded the new Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Combat Systems, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) ID/IQ . The agreement has a shared ceiling value of $175 million and a possible term of up to eight years.

The ARL also awarded ICF its first task order under the ID/IQ, which is an estimated $20 million engagement to perform full-spectrum defensive cyberoperations and research and development.
