HII receives $826M defense contract
Work includes technology services, analytics support
Newport News-based Huntington Ingalls Industries will provide technology and other support to the Department of Defense under a $826 million contract.
According to a news release, HII’s McLean-based mission technologies division will also provide threat analysis and analytics support as well as operations integration and operational effects support. The work will support Defense Department service components, research labs, combatants commands, national intelligence agencies and organizations other than the military services that have manpower resources, such as the Defense Acquisition University, the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) and the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA).
The award has a ceiling of $826 million with a one-year base period and four one-year option periods.
“Advancing U.S. national security is HII’s highest priority,” said Andy Green, president of HII’s mission technologies division, in a statement. “We are proud to partner with the Department of Defense and its mission partners to deliver critical integrated technology services to counter and deter current and emerging global threats.”
Fortune 500 contractor HII is Virginia’s largest industrial employer with a workforce of more than 44,000 people, including Newport News Shipbuilding.
