Fairfax company wins $484M DOD contract
Salient CRGT to provide information networks, cyber and engineering services
On Tuesday, Fairfax-based software company Salient CRGT Inc. announced it had been awarded the first of four options on a potential $482 million award supporting the U.S. Department of Defense’s (DOD) specialized information technology systems and warfighter networks.
The five-year, single-award contract is named SANDBAR and was initially awarded in September 2019 as a competitive order under the General Services Administration (GSA) Alliant 2 Vehicle. This contract includes the design, development, deployment, sustainment and lifecycle management of specialized information technologies.
The first option year of SANDBAR was exercised in late September 2020. The current option year includes the support of the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Space Force, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, the combatant commands and the Fourth Estate agencies.
“Our flexible and mission focused approach to SANDBAR honed across the past year will continue to provide our diverse DOD client base with increased efficiency and effectiveness in the delivery of cyber, engineering, development and IT services to their end-users,” Tom Ferrando, Salient CRGT CEO, said in a statement. “We thoroughly understand the need to remain a responsive industry partner to our critical DOD customers providing effective solutions and implementation options to support the dynamic mission needs of the current global climate.”
Salient CRGT formed in 2015 following the merger of Salient Federal Solutions Inc. and CRGT, which created a $500 million company focused on agile development, data analytics and cybersecurity.
