General Dynamics (GD) Information Technology has received a single-award task order contract to operate and maintain information technology (IT) networks for the US Army.
The Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) IT Support Services 3 contract has a potential value of approximately $300m.
Under the deal, GD will be responsible for delivering support services for network and maintenance operations, storage management, information assurance, engineering, installation, web services, and communications.
As part of the project, the company will ensure reliable and uninterrupted availability of command, control, communications, computers and information management (C4IM) networks, hardware, software, engineering, and specialised tools to support the INSCOM mission.
INSCOM and its major commands help connect the US Army and its tactical formations with defence and national intelligence agencies through tactical networks.
General Dynamics Information Technology Defence portfolio vice-president and general manager Mike Hatcher said: “General Dynamics knows how critical these services are to the US Department of Defence and INSCOM missions.
“We are committed to adding value and enhanced security necessary to support INSCOM.”
Work on the project will be carried out at US Army installations in Fort Belvoir and Fort Gordon, Georgia, as well as other locations across the world.
General Dynamics has provided support to the US Army INSCOM since the command was established in 1977.
The company provides IT services and global support that help enhance troop capability and security.
