GSA ASTRO General Overview


GSA ASTRO is a family of ten separate, individual, multiple award, Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts that encompass a variety of services related to manned, unmanned, and optionally manned platforms and robotics. This GSA contract:

  • Spans many areas of expertise.
  • Includes any and all components required to formulate a total solution to a requirement.
  • Allows solutions that cross over multiple disciplines.
  • Allows flexibility for all contract types at the task order level including fixed-price (all types), cost reimbursement (all types), T&M/LH, or a hybrid mix of contract types.
  • Allows ancillary support components at the task order level.

The scope of the GSA ASTRO contracts includes operations, maintenance, readiness, research, development, systems integration, and support for manned, unmanned, and optionally manned platforms and/or robotics, as well as the services that support those platforms and robotics. These platforms and robotics may be based on land, air, sea, and/or space.

The GSA ASTRO Master Contract is designed to be a total solution vehicle for services solicited and awarded at the task order level. Total solution is defined as any combination of support that is integral and necessary to the service-based requirements within the scope of the Master Contract and task order award.
