Leidos lands contract worth $401M
Reston contractor will provide IT services to Defense Intelligence Agency
Reston-based federal contractor Leidos announced Thursday it has won a contract worth $401 million, if all options are exercised, to provide information technology operations and maintenance support to the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).
“This award is a true testament to our strong capabilities and proven performance working with the Department of Defense and Intelligence Community,” Leidos Intelligence Group President Vicki Schmanske said in a statement. “We are excited to expand our relationship with the DIA and leverage our past performance in IT modernization to advance the agency’s technical capabilities for more efficient, effective and consistent support to critical national security missions.”
The DIA is a U.S. intelligence agency that provides information for combat and noncombat military missions. Work on the contract awarded to Leidos will be performed at the agency headquarters — Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington, D.C. — as well as at Leidos facilities.
Leidos will provide desktop systems and data center support, as well as security, architecture, applications management, mobile device services and traffic management.
With annual revenues of $11.09 billion last year and 37,000 employees, Leidos is a Fortune 500 company that specializes in technology and engineering services for federal defense agencies.
