Perspecta wins $112M Homeland Security contract
Chantilly-based contractor to provide IT services to department's data centers
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security awarded a contract worth up to $112 million to Perspecta Inc. to provide managed information technology services to the department’s data centers, the Chantilly-based federal contractor announced Thursday.
“This award reinforces our standing as a premier provider of end-to-end next generation managed IT services,” Rocky Thurston, senior vice president and general manager of Perspecta’s civilian, state and local business group, said in a statement. “It will also support DHS’ strategic efforts to consolidate and optimize data centers.”
Under the Data Center Two Support Services indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, Perspecta will provide data center consolidation services, hosting and engineering support, application and system migration, planning, retirement and execution support. The contract has a two-year base term and two six-month option periods.
Perspecta employs more than 14,000 workers and won several big federal contracts last year, including an $824 million, five-year deal with the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency and a $657 million extension on its Next Generation Enterprise Services (NGEN) contract to continue IT services for the U.S. Department of the Navy. The Chantilly-based contractor has also previously worked with the Department of Homeland Security.
“We have a long and proven history of supporting DHS on a multitude of programs, from agile DevSecOps to secure cloud migration and management, and we look forward to continuing that partnership in support DHS’ long-term IT transformation goals,” Thurston said in a statement.
