US Government agency General Services Administration (GSA) has awarded The KeyW Holding a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) to support the US Department of Defense (DoD) and other defence agencies.
Under the multiple award contract, KeyW will be responsible for delivering professional engineering services across the remote sensing, command control communications and computer (RS&C4) mission areas.
The services provided by the company will help develop, assess and operate new and advanced capabilities to address requirements of the Joint Service.
The new indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract is slated to continue for a period of five years and has an estimated value of $135m.
The KeyW Holding Corporate Strategy and Business Development vice-president Kirk Herdman said: “This new award is important to growing and aligning KeyW’s IDIQ portfolio with our core competencies.”
The scope of the current contract supports the company’s strategic areas of focus, which include manned and unmanned aerial systems engineering, forensics, cyber technologies, data control and computer research, operations and assessments.
Herdman added: “We’re excited to bring KeyW’s strong intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities to this mission.
“This work helps support near-term and long-term warfighter requirements and aligns with KeyW’s core strengths in operational cyber, identity intelligence, advanced sensing and computer forensic capabilities.”
In July this year, KeyW received a new six-year, multi-million dollar task order to serve as a key subcontractor to Lockheed Martin to provide global support for the US Army’s intelligence training systems.
