Peraton awarded $109M cyberspace contract
Will continue work with U.S. Cyber Command
Herndon-based federal Peraton Inc. announced this week it has been awarded a contract worth up to $109 million by the U.S. Cyber Command, a project that will deliver full-spectrum cyberspace operations for the Department of Defense.
The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity Cyberspace Operations Support Services task order could last four years, the company said in a news release Tuesday. Peraton, which employs about 22,000 people in more than 90 locations, would support the command’s directorate of operations, the Cyber National Mission Force and Joint Task Force ARES, strengthening the DoD’s information network. The company has worked with the command since 2016.
“Peraton is proud to continue our work partnering with the DoD to improve the nation’s ability to withstand and respond to cyberattacks,” Tom Afferton, president of Peraton’s cyber mission sector, said in a statement.
Earlier in the year, Peraton acquired Chantilly-based federal IT contractor Perspecta Inc. for $7.1 billion and Northrop Grumman Corp.’s federal IT and mission support services business for $3.4 billion. The company grew out of Veritas Capital’s 2017 acquisition of the former government services business Harris Corp.
