Parsons has won a contract from the Intelligence Community (IC) to provide the security assessment and protection of systems.

Under the $32m two-year contract, Parson will also protect critical infrastructure globally. This will be done through a comprehensive analysis of risk and by deploying physical and technical security countermeasures.

Parsons national security solutions operating unit vice-president and account executive Veronica Kazaitis said: “For decades, Parsons has advanced the mission security, resiliency and capabilities of our nation’s intelligence community, specifically in cyber, resilient critical infrastructure protection and multi-domain battlespace awareness and operations.

“We are honoured to provide holistic support to the systems, networks and protection of critical infrastructure that are foundational to the community’s mission success.”

Earlier this month, the US Army Corps of Engineers extended its contract with Parsons for repair works. Repair works are conducted at Bucholz Army Airfield on Kwajalein Atoll in the Republic of the Marshall Islands.

The move exercises two contract options for a combined value of $30.5m. Repair works associated with the contract were planned to be completed in a single phase and was expected to not affect airfield operations at the site.

Last year, the initial contract was awarded to Parsons to renovate the Bucholz Army Airfield.

In March this year, Parsons secured a position on a utility monitoring and control systems (UMCS V) contract through the US Army Corps of Engineers Engineering and Support Center.

The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract was awarded to seven companies, including Parsons. The multiple-award contract has a total ceiling value of $1.2bn.
