Xentity is awarded USGS IDIQ for Enterprise and Solution Architecture

Xentity has been awarded a 5 year (base year plus 4 option year vehicle) for providing enterprise and solution architecture services to the USGS.

Xentity has been awarded an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract by USGS.  This blanket contract vehicle enables any and all USGS mission areas and programs to gain access to Xentity’s services through Firm Fixed Price task orders.  This contract vehicle has established terms and conditions allowing the task orders to be issued without any further competition or sole-source justification.  And, since Xentity is an 8(a) certified small disadvantaged business, task orders for this IDIQ contribute to USGS goals for small disadvantaged business contracting.
