Defence technology solutions provider Parsons has won a multiple award task order contract supporting intelligence missions from the US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).

The ten-year indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract is for DIA’s Solutions for Information Technology Enterprise III (SITE III).

The contract has an option for a five-year base and five option periods. It is valued at $12.6bn across the awardees.

It is the third in a series of DIA’s IDIQ contracts and comes as a follow-on to the E-SITE IT acquisition contract that ended last December.

Through the SITE III contract, DIA will award several task orders to small and large-scale businesses.

SITE III support services facilitate DIA’s infrastructure, systems and other applications’ operations and modernisation.

It helps improve integration, information sharing and safeguarding via a streamlined IT approach.

This approach represents an ‘alignment with the Intelligence Community’s Information Technology Enterprise (IC ITE)’ as directed by the national intelligence director.

With the help of SITE III services, DIA supports troops, policymakers and Defense Intelligence Enterprise (DIE) acquisition leaders.

Parsons geospatial solutions market senior vice-president Richard D’Alessandro said: “We look forward to partnering with DIA on SITE III to deliver innovative IT solutions.

“Our expertise in programme management, technology integration, IT infrastructure, and applications development will aid the modernisation efforts of DIA and its mission partners.”

The contract services will benefit several departments and agencies such as the DIA, CCMDs, airforce, space force, army, USMC, coast guard and Joint Reserve Intelligence Program (JRIP) among many other DoD agencies.
