GDIT Secures Spot on CBP’s $1.8B Surveillance Systems Modernization IDIQ

Customs and Border Protection has awarded General Dynamics Information Technology a spot on a potential 14-year, $1.8 billion indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for surveillance systems modernization.

GDIT and two other awardees will have the chance to compete for contracts to modernize CBP’s Consolidated Tower & Surveillance Equipment system. If awarded task orders, GDIT and GD Mission Systems will update surveillance systems the IT segment provided to CBP over the last 10 years and introduce new sensing and wireless networking solutions.

The company will also provide automation and artificial intelligence solutions to improve situational awareness and safety for Border Patrol personnel.

CTSE comprises fixed and relocatable sensor towers and communications equipment needed for surveillance missions along the northern and southern borders of the United States, GDIT said Monday.

The CBP contract is one of several modernization efforts the company was awarded in recent months.

In November, the Indian Health Service awarded GDIT a potential 10-year, $2.5 billion IDIQ to replace the agency’s electronic health record platform with a cloud-based Oracle Health enterprise EHR. The new system is designed to enhance data access and sharing across IHS and tribal health facilities across the U.S.

In October, GDIT secured a potential seven-year, $450 million contract to modernize the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services‘ accounting system.
