Salient CRGT Inc. will provide network engineering, design, implementation and infrastructure support
Fairfax-based tech contractor Salient CRGT Inc. won a $207 million contract from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to design and operate its enterprise network security and network transportation services.
Under the five-year, single-award task order, named Network Engineering, Design, Implementation and Infrastructure Support (NEDIIS), Salient CRGT will implement, maintain and improve the VA’s network security and transportation, providing technical support to VA Trusted Internet Connections, Virtual Private Networks, VA Network Operations Center and others.
“Our unparalleled understanding of VA’s complex IT environment and stakeholders provides VA with a proven high-performing team, disciplined and focused on supporting the advancement of this mission-essential program,” Salient CRGT CEO Tom Ferrando said in a statement. “We are committed to continuing our support to the NEDIIS program for this next contract period with additional mission critical scope and services.”
Salient CRGT has more than 1,500 employees and provides technology and mission support services to government agencies. The company formed in 2015 following the merger of Salient Federal Solutions Inc. and CRGT. In August, Government CIO, a health IT contractor backed by Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe, acquired Salient CRGT from Bridge Growth Partners and Frontenac Co.
