Leidos wins $1.5B Social Security Administration contracts
Reston contractor will provide IT services
Leidos Inc. won two Social Security Administration IT task orders with a combined potential value of $1.5 billion, the Reston-based Fortune 500 contractor announced Monday.
The task orders fall under the SSA’s IT Support Services Contract II. Under the indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity task orders, Leidos will provide software systems and infrastructure support for the SSA’s deputy commissioner of systems, including web/interface design and lifecycle software improvement. The company will also plan, implement, operate and maintain the SSA Office of Systems Operations and Hardware Engineering’s computer systems, enterprise IT infrastructure and application services.
“We are pleased to continue our work with the SSA and provide innovative solutions along their IT modernization journey,” Leidos Health Group President Liz Porter said in a statement. “These awards will allow us to extend our current support into new areas such as IT infrastructure and programmatic support.”
Each award has a base period that ran from early September 2022 to the start of the first option on Sept. 29, 2022, with five one-year options and one six-month option. Herndon-based government contractor Peraton Inc. contested the awards, and the Government Accountability Office denied a second challenge, according to Washington Technology.
Leidos previously received an IT Support Services Contract from the SSA in August 2018 that had a combined potential value of $639 million. The contractor provided support in development, testing, maintenance, data base administration, document management, strategic planning and project management services.
Leidos provides technology, engineering and science services to defense, intelligence, civil and health markets. The company employs 44,000 people and reported $13.74 billion in 2021 revenue.
