General Dynamics [GD] Information Technology has received a $2 billion deal to continue managing the State Department’s global supply chain security, the company said Tuesday.
The deal, which includes a five-base period and a five-year option, arrives after a protest from AECOM’s [ACM] URS subsidiary was denied following the initial contract award last September.
“This award demonstrates GDIT’s commitment to providing world-class solutions for our customers and expanding the broader security mission of federal agencies,” Amy Gilliland, president of GDIT, said in a statement. “We are excited to continue supporting one of the federal government’s largest supply chain and logistics operations.”
The contract builds on GDIT’s initial deal in 2012 with the State Department and includes providing a fully-integrated solution for technical security systems, engineering and solution development, hybrid supply chain and distribution management. GDIT is also tasked with supporting the department’s global logistics and transportation network.
“GDIT delivers millions of security-related items to embassies and high-threat posts worldwide,” Paul Nedzbala, head of GDIT’s federal civilian division, said in a statement. “We remain committed to this important work for the State Department and its employees across the globe.”
