Fairfax company wins $175M Homeland Security contract
Salient CRGT to provide IT service desk services
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security awarded Fairfax-based software company Salient CRGT Inc. a $175 million contract to provide IT service desk and field engineer support services for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the company announced last week.
Under the five-year contract, Salient CRGT will provide services for approximately 27,000 USCIS end users across 250 locations. The company will provide desk operations and IT support to the system that manages the nation’s immigration system.
“Our knowledge of the operational environment and our commitment to the highest possible customer service provides USCIS with a dedicated and trusted partner to assist in executing this critical mission,” Salient CRGT CEO Tom Ferrando said in a statement. “We are honored to provide innovation and responsiveness in this partnership.”
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.
