FSA Federal awarded $1.3B DOJ contract
1,400 employees will carry out project.
Ashburn-based government services company FSA Federal announced Tuesday it has won a U.S. Department of Justice contract potentially worth $1.3 billion .
Under the contract, FSA Federal will continue to work on its DOJ Asset Forfeiture Administrative Support Services contract. Started in 2004 to support DOJ law enforcement contracts, FSA Federal is a joint venture of Reston-based Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) and Germantown, Maryland-based Amentum. This is the third time that FSA Federal has been selected for this DOJ contract.
“The FSA 3.0 approach will help DOJ effectively accomplish its mission to disrupt dangerous criminal organizations that threaten communities nationwide,” George Mendiola Jr., managing director of FSA, said in a statement. “The evolution of our company focuses on customer service, accountability, and employee satisfaction for continued success into the future.”
The Asset Forfeiture Program aims to deter crime and restore property to crime victims. FSA Federal will deploy approximately 1,400 employees in more than 400 locations in the U.S. and its territories to carry out the contract — most of whom are working from home right now, Ellen Klicka, FSA Federal senior communications manager says.
“We were notified March 19 and have been ramping up extremely quickly, even during the pandemic,” Klicka says.
