Peraton lands $130M DOD contract
Herndon contractor will help modernize benefits assessment applications
Herndon-based national security contractor Peraton Inc. has received a five-year contract worth up to $130 million to assist the Department of Defense with modernizing computer applications to determine benefits eligibility, it announced Thursday.
Under the Entitlements and Benefits Application Modernization and Sustainment program, Peraton will help the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) upgrade nearly 100 applications that assess entitlements for service members, retirees, family members and other beneficiaries.
Jeffrey Bohling, president of Peraton’s defense solutions sector, said in a statement, “Peraton’s history of scaling complex programs for DMDC minimizes the learning curve for this program and will provide service members and their dependents with a fast, secure way to obtain the benefits they deserve.”
The work will primarily be performed in Seaside, California, and Alexandria, Virginia.
Peraton Inc. grew out of Veritas Capital’s 2017 acquisition of the former government services business Harris Corp. Peraton provides systems development and mission capability integration to federal agencies. It is currently involved with other DMDC programs like Worldwide COTS Hardware, Software, Maintenance and Integration Services II.
