Perspecta wins $202M defense contract
Chantilly company to provide tech services for Defense Information Systems Agency
The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) awarded Chantilly-based federal contractor Perspecta Inc. a $201.5 million contract to provide technical services in support of its Global Content Delivery Services (GCDS) II program, the company announced Thursday.
Perspecta was the prime contractor for the GCDS I program, working with DISA in expanding the Defense Information Systems Network. The company was tapped for the initial program in 2006 and won an additional contract in 2014.
The GCDS II contract award will require Perspecta to continue its work managing the content-related services used by all military services, combatant commands and U.S. Department of Defense agencies. Perspecta will provide network storage, streaming, secure content delivery, web application availability, single sign-on and related services.
“The global reach of the [Department of Defense] means it must have the most secure, reliable and rapid capability for delivering content anywhere. This award is a testament to our strong performance on the GCDS I program,” said Jeff Bohling, senior vice president and general manager of Perspecta’s defense group, in a statement.
In late January, Perspecta announced it was being acquired by Herndon-based national security contractor Peraton Inc. in a $7.1 billion all-cash transaction. The acquisition is expected to close during the first half of 2021.
