GDIT Secures $162M DISA Identity, Credential and Access Management OTA
The Defense Information Systems Agency has awarded General Dynamics Information Technology a contract potentially worth $162 million for identity, credential and access management. The award is an other transaction authority phase III production agreement.
GDIT will provide an ICAM solution for the Department of Defense’s applications. The new OTA builds on phases I and II, which were awarded to GDIT to complete a pilot prototype.
The third phase will allow the Pentagon to onboard its financial management applications into the ICAM solution, GDIT said Wednesday.
The company’s platform is designed to enable interoperability with other agencies. This reduces costs, increases security for DOD’s mission partners and enables seamless and secure data sharing among agencies.
The solution is designed to improve the Pentagon’s security architecture. According to GDIT President Amy Gilliland, the ICAM platform will be a critical component in the DOD’s push toward a zero trust architecture.
Gilliland also shared that the ICAM solution will support the Pentagon’s push for Joint All-Domain Command and Control and the creation of a connected joint force.
GDIT, a Falls Church, Virginia-headquartered company, offers products and services such as aviation, ship construction and repair, land combat vehicles, weapons systems and munitions and technology support. Its clients include organizations in health, homeland security, defense and intelligence sectors.
