Reston company to work on complaint, information providing for consumers
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) awarded Reston-based Fortune 500 government contractor Leidos Holdings Inc. a $162 million contract to work on the commission’s Sentinel Network Services (SNS) program.
Under the contract, Leidos will work on gathering complaints and providing information for consumers while offering protection services. The work is being done for the commission’s Bureau of Consumer Protection (BCP).
“The SNS program plays a critical role protecting consumers from deceptive and unfair practices in the marketplace,” Leidos Civil Group President Jim Moos said in a statement. “Through our lead role on this program, Leidos will continue delivering FTC advice to consumers and providing law enforcement access to complaints and investigative tools so they can take action.”
The SNS platform also provides a centralized place for data analytics for use by law enforcement across the world.
With annual revenues of $11.09 billion last year and 37,000 employees, Leidos specializes in technology and engineering services for defense agencies.
