GDIT wins $518M Army contract
General Dynamics Corp. subsidiary will assist CECOM
Falls Church-based General Dynamics Information Technology Inc. (GDIT) won a $518 million task order from the U.S. Army Communications Electronics Command (CECOM), the company announced Monday.
Under the Worldwide Field Support task order, the Fortune 500 General Dynamics Corp. subsidiary will provide logistics, sustainment and maintenance services for joint U.S. and coalition forces in the Army Field Support Brigade regions. It includes support for current and future C5ISR — formerly Communications-Electronics RD&E Center — systems, equipment and ancillary operational requirements.
The task order is part of the indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity Responsive Strategic Sourcing for Services Multiple Award that a General Dynamics Corp. joint venture — including GDIT, General Dynamics Mission Systems, General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems and General Dynamics Land Systems — won in April 2021.
“We’re excited to accelerate work on this important program, which brings together expertise from across General Dynamics, focusing our collective hardware and software systems solutions on providing CECOM with an innovative and cost-effective approach to supporting the warfighter’s mission,” GDIT President Amy Gilliland said in a statement.
Reston-based aerospace and defense contractor General Dynamics employs more than 100,000 people worldwide and generated $38.5 billion in revenue in 2021.
