NCI Information Systems has secured a contract that involves providing key information technology (IT) support at the US Army Futures Command (AFC) headquarters in the GSA Federal Building in Austin, Texas.

The contract, awarded by US Army Information Systems Engineering Command, carries a 17-month period of performance.

NCI has already started working on the contract that involves providing command, control, communications, computers, cyber, and intelligence/information technology (C5I/IT) systems for the AFC headquarters.

Overall, the company will be responsible for engineering, furnishing, installing, securing, testing and warranty of AFC’s C5I/IT systems.

Additionally, NCI will also provide on-site training, project management support data and integration of the systems.

NCI president and CEO Paul A Dillahay said: “Futures Command is playing a critical role in advancing the transformation of modernisation for army systems and operations. We look forward to leveraging our deep customer expertise, together with our emerging technologies, to advance our nation’s warfighters’ mission.

“This is a really important milestone for us. It reflects on our great past work with the army along with Army Futures Command, as well as their confidence in our expertise, exemplary work quality, and our highly trained and talented NCI team, who are giving their all every day to support our customers across the federal mission landscape.”

As an IT service management company, NCI works with US defence, intelligence, health and civilian government agencies.

Last year, the company secured the contract to provide IT support to the Defense Information Systems Agency’s Joint Service Provider (JSP). The contract had a ceiling value of $269.9m.
