Perspecta wins $201.5M defense contract
Chantilly company to provide content delivery services for Defense Information Systems Agency
The Defense Information Systems Agency awarded Chantilly-based federal contractor Perspecta Inc. a $201.5 million contract to provide content delivery services, the Department of Defense announced Tuesday.
Under the contract, Perspecta will perform work at government data centers both in the United States and worldwide.
The Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization received four offers for the contract, according to the DOD. The company has not released further details about the contract.
In late January, Perspecta announced it would be acquired for $7.1 billion by Herndon-based national security contractor Peraton, an affiliate of private investment firm Veritas Capital, in an all-cash deal. Perspecta will combine with Peraton under the transaction, which is expected to close during the first half of 2021.
Perspecta employs more than 14,000 workers and won several large federal contracts this past year, including an $824 million, five-year deal with the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency.
