General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) has been awarded a task order by General Services Administration (GSA) for secure IT services.

Under the Enterprise Mission Information Technology Services (EMITS) task order, the company will continue to support the United States Army Europe (USAREUR).

Awarded in the fourth quarter of last year, the five-year contract has an estimated value of $695m.

It includes a three-month transition, base period of one year and four one-year options.

Under the task order, GDIT will deliver enterprise information technology, communications and mission command support services.

In addition, the technical expertise in cybersecurity solutions provided by the company for deployed critical mission command networks and systems will further optimise them.

These services are for USAREUR headquarters, US Nato operations, as well as other forward-deployed Department of Defense (DoD) establishments and Regionally Aligned Forces (RAF) in Europe.

GDIT president Amy Gilliland said: “GDIT looks forward to the opportunity to continue supporting the USAREUR G6 and its growing need for expanded theatre communications and greater interoperability to enhance army and allied mission command systems.”

The latest EMITS task order builds on GDIT’s USAREUR G6 Theater Mission Command Contract (TMCC) II task order. This was awarded to the company in 2016.

Last month, General Dynamics secured a $4.6bn fixed-price-incentive contract to deliver M1A2 SEPv3 Abrams main battle tanks for the US Army.
