Savi, a Lockheed Martin company and provider of RFID-based supply chain products and solutions, has been selected by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to compete for future task orders under the RFID III procurement contracting vehicle. Three other contractors also were selected to bid for task orders during the initial three-year ordering period that’s scheduled to begin early next year.
RFID III is an indefinite-delivery-indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract established by the U.S. Army on behalf of all Services with a total value of $428 million for active Radio Frequency Identification hardware, software and engineering services. The competitively bid RFID III contract, administered by the U.S. Army’s Product Manager Joint-Automatic Identification Technology (PM J-AIT) office, is open to purchase orders from other U.S. federal agencies and non-U.S. defense forces.
“We’re honored that Savi’s proven technology solutions continue to earn the trust of the DoD through the RFID III contract,” says David Stephens, chief executive officer of Savi Technology. “We are fully dedicated to continuing to deliver innovative products and solutions that support the DoD’s objectives and critical operations to enhance the visibility, management and health of vital assets throughout the supply chain.”
Savi is a provider of active battery-powered RFID products and solutions to the U.S. DoD, providing products and solutions to the DoD for more than a dozen years through the RFID I and RFID II contracts. Savi helped to build the DoD’s In-Transit Visibility network, which is the world’s largest active RFID-based cargo tracking system spanning more than 4,000 nodes across more than 40 countries.
