HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Dec. 22, 2005 – Intergraph Corporation
The Tyonek-Intergraph team recently signed its first deal: the FIGHTER contract administered by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Research and Development Center (ERDC), Information Technology Laboratory, CADD/GIS Technology Center. The center was chartered by the Department of Defense as the focal point for this technology, including providing acquisition vehicles for the center and its partnering agencies. FIGHTER is a replacement for the Installation Management/Facilities CAD-2 (IM/FCAD-2) contract, one of the largest CADD/GIS Technology Center contracts, to support previous users. FIGHTER stands for facilities, infrastructure, geospatial, homeland security, technical support services and environmental requirements. Tyonek is the prime contractor, and Intergraph is the subcontractor.
“Intergraph continually seeks highly qualified business partners with proven track records and unique capabilities, especially small disadvantaged businesses,” said Joseph Fehrenbach, Intergraph vice president of Homeland Security and Department of Defense. “Tyonek represents the best possible combination of factors in choosing a long-term business partner: strong leadership, proven past performance in demanding environments, unique technical and operational capabilities and a commitment to quality and customer satisfaction.”
Scott Pfeifer, Tyonek vice president of services, said: “Intergraph has a tremendous reputation for providing quality force protection, homeland security, geospatial and facilities management solutions to the U.S. military and other federal agencies. This perfectly complements our manufacturing, contract management and quality control focus to deliver excellent results on time and on budget.”
The FIGHTER contract is open to agencies across the U.S. government, including Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, Coast Guard, Defense Logistics Agency, U.S. Geological Survey, NASA, Environmental Protection Agency, General Services Administration, Department of Justice, Federal Aviation Administration and all subordinate agencies and departments of these authorized buyers. Additional authorized buyers may be added.
Agencies purchasing solutions from the Tyonek-Intergraph team on the FIGHTER contract can obtain small disadvantaged business credit, enabling an agency to progress toward its small business contracting goals. Founded by Dena’ina Athabascan Indians, Tyonek qualifies for the 8(a) program as an Alaska Native corporation. The program encourages socially and economically disadvantaged businesses to team with experienced companies, such as Intergraph, for contract opportunities inside the federal government.
