Perspecta subsidiary Enterprise Services has secured a contract to support the US Department of Defense’s (DoD) mission-critical hardware and software.

With a maximum ceiling value of $564m if all options are exercised, the contracted task order will continue for a period of five years.

The order has been placed by the General Services Administration Federal Acquisition Service Assisted Acquisition Services Region 3 on behalf of the US DoD Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC).

Under the agreement, the company will continue delivering maintenance and integration services of mission-critical hardware and software used by the department across the globe.

“Throughout our nearly four-decade partnership, DoD has trusted us to manage and integrate highly proprietary, confidential and essential defence data systems and technologies.”

As part of the task order, Perspecta will continue to provide the DMDC with highly reliable and globally available commercial off-the-shelf hardware, software, maintenance and integration services that would enable mission success of the data centre.

Perspecta president and chief executive officer Mac Curtis said: “Throughout our nearly four-decade partnership, DoD has trusted us to manage and integrate highly proprietary, confidential and essential defence data systems and technologies.

“We are uniquely qualified to support the DoD human resource mission while increasing efficiencies and mitigating risks.”

In addition, the company will continue to sustain a wide range of systems, including real-time automated personnel identification, defence biometrics identification, non-combatant tracking / emergency tracking accountability, and joint asset movement management.

The DoD DMDC is committed to maintaining the central and authoritative source of personnel, manpower, training and security data for the US department, supporting decision-making by the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense (OUSD) for Personnel and Readiness, other OUSD organisations, as well as customers within and outside the DoD.
