One of the Dayton region’s largest veteran- and minority-owned companies has been named to a massive defense contract.
Moraine-based Stellar Innovations & Solutions Inc., a provider of professional services and information technology support, was one of five companies to land a U.S. Navy deal worth up to $151 million. It was the only Ohio company named to the award, which also included firms in Virginia, Kansas and New Jersey. The five companies beat out 23 other businesses for the contract.
As part of the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, Stellar Innovations & Solutions will provide full information technology lifecycle support to Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command’s (NAVFAC) core facilities management, construction management and installation management systems.
The work that will be performed is IT services and solutions across multiple functional areas, including systems development lifecycle support; cybersecurity support; business systems operations and support; IT operations management and enterprise; cloud operations/migration/system development; secure infrastructure and analysis; and management services.
Work on this contract could be performed in Port Hueneme, California; San Diego, California; Washington, D.C.; Pearl Harbor, Hawaii; Norfolk, Virginia; Kansas City, Missouri; Bremerton, Washington; and Yokosuka, Japan.
The term of the contract is not to exceed 66 months, with an expected completion date of August 2026. NAVFAC Engineering and Expeditionary Warfare Center in Port Hueneme is the contracting activity.
The contract is significant because it brings in a substantial amount of new work for Stellar Innovations & Solutions, and will likely help the company grow. It also helps strengthen the firm’s relationship with the Navy, and may lead to future deals. Stellar Innovations & Solutions is the fifth-largest veteran-owned business and 11th-largest minority-owned business in the Dayton region, according to DBJ research. Founded in 2008, the company had grown to 70 employees as of last year.
