Newport News, VA – On November 28, 2011 Spectrum was notified as a prime on the Acquisition Consolidated Enterprise Support Services (ACCESS) Contract (official award date of December 6). One day later, Spectrum received notification the company was also awarded as a large business prime on the Contracted Advisory and Assistance Services (CAAS) IV contract.

ACCESS is a $500 million contract which supports the Air Force Materiel Command, Aeronautical Systems Command, and the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson AFB (WPAFB), Ohio. This Advisory & Assistance Services (A&AS) Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract expands Spectrum’s presence to the Dayton area and provides Spectrum’s ACCESS Team opportunities consisting of providing assistance, advice, or training for the efficient and effective management and operation of organization, activities, or systems for the various WPAFB agencies.

Spectrum and its CAAS IV Team were one of eleven large company teams selected to perform as a prime contractor on this contract. CAAS IV provides assistance and advisory services for Headquarters Air Combat Command (ACC) and the Air Force District of Washington (AFDW) government customers. The support is in the areas of Management and Professional Services; Studies, Analyses and Evaluations; and Engineering and Technical Services. CAAS IV is a 5 year contract with a $4.7 billion ceiling.

Jeff Wassmer states, “Spectrum had quite an exciting week with the announcement of these two wins, especially as we weren’t even expecting to hear about CAAS IV until mid-December! We have worked hard to ensure perfected processes and we have an incredible team of employee-owners who provide us stellar past performance that proves our capabilities to execute on these contracts. I look forward to the new opportunities these two IDIQs offer and am both humbled and privileged that Spectrum continues to be able to support the world’s greatest customer, our American warriors.”
