DLA Troop Support anticipates issuing a solicitation for the referenced item(s) under an Indefinite Quantity Contract.  The contract may be for a term of one year.  Further, it may contain an option to extend the term of the contract.  If an option to extend the term of the contract provision is included in the solicitation, each option term would be one year.  However, the total contract term will not exceed five years.
