Perspecta, now under Peraton, lands $473.8 million agreement
Will continue work for Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency
The U.S. Department of Defense has awarded a potential five-year transaction agreement valued at $473.8 million to Perspecta Enterprise Solutions LLC, now part of Herndon-based national security contractor Peraton Inc.
The work supports the development of a comprehensive IT system to manage background investigations and security clearances for federal employees and contractors, according to last week’s announcement.
It also follows an transaction agreement Perspecta won in May 2019 on a security enterprise architecture and data analytics prototype.
The agreement covers enterprise information technology application development services for the Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency, the defense department said. Work will be performed within the National Capital Region surrounding Fort Meade, Maryland.
Peraton, whose parent company is New York-based private investment firm Veritas Capital, completed its $7.1 billion acquisition of Perspecta Inc. on May 7.
