GDIT secures $162M DISA Agency contract
Falls Church contractor will move DOD financial management apps to tech solution
Falls Church-based General Dynamics Information Technology Inc. (GDIT) announced Wednesday it had secured a potential $162 million contract with the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) to secure identity, access and account management for U.S Department of Defense applications.
The Identity, Credential and Access Management (ICAM) Other Transaction Authority (OTA) Phase III production agreement has a one-year base period with four option years. GDIT completed a pilot prototype in phases I and II. In this phase, it will continue to onboard the Defense Department’s financial management applications into the system and will expand the program to include non-financial management applications.
“DOD and DISA’s enterprise ICAM solution will serve as a critical pillar of its cybersecurity strategy and ultimate push toward a zero-trust architecture,” GDIT President Amy Gilliland said in a statement.
GDIT’s solution allows interoperability with other agencies, assisting with the department’s Joint All-Domain Command and Control concept to create a centralized system that allows data sharing among agencies.
Reston-based aerospace and defense contractor General Dynamics employs more than 100,000 people worldwide and generated $38.5 billion in revenue in 2021.
