By DISA News - September 10, 2018
The Defense Information Systems Agency’s ENCORE III Small Business Set-Aside Suite is now available. This contracting vehicle provides a full range of information technology (IT) services and solutions required by the Department of Defense, other federal agencies, and the intelligence community.

The long-awaited follow-on vehicle to ENCORE II provides services ranging from engineering development to full sustainment under a suite of multiple award, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contracts not to exceed $17.5 billion.

The ENCORE III Full and Open Large Business Suite was awarded in March, ushering the way for the Small Business Set-Aside Suite.
