Small Business Awarded Big USGS 3DEP Geospatial Contract
Five-year contract with Aerial Services has a ceiling of $750 million
Aerial Services Inc., (ASI) a veteran-owned small business, geospatial services firm has been awarded an U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Geospatial Product and Service Contract (GPSC). The contract is a five-year indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) agreement with a total contract ceiling of $750,000,000.
“Aerial Services is pleased to have been awarded this important geospatial contract. This award will have a major impact on our continued success. The USGS 3D Elevation Program (3DEP) program will have long-term benefits to the U.S. economy and ASI looks forward to bringing our 20 plus years of federal prime contractor experience and quality services to meet the needs of USGS and their partners,” says Mike Tully, president of Aerial Services.
The agencies’ GPSC is a suite of contracts used by federal, state and municipal government entities for purpose of fulfilling their geospatial data requirements. Photogrammetric and mapping services are primarily awarded under the umbrella of Qualifications-Based Selection (QBS) Architect-Engineer (A&E) contracting. The contracts are broad in scope and can accommodate any activity related to standard, nonstandard, graphic and digital cartographic products. Services provided include, but are not limited to, imagery and LiDAR data acquisition, data processing, and photogrammetric mapping.
The GPSC contracts will support the USGS 3DEP initiative. This program was developed to respond to growing needs for high-quality topographic data and for a wide range of other 3D representations. The primary goal of 3DEP is to systematically collect enhanced elevation data in the form of high-quality LiDAR data over the conterminous U.S., Hawaii and the U.S. territories.
