General Dynamics Unit Secures $712M Task Order for DHS HQ Consolidation Project
The Department of Homeland Security has awarded a potential seven-year, $712 million task order to General Dynamics Information Technology for the ongoing infrastructure modernization of its St. Elizabeth’s Campus in southeast Washington, D.C.
The award, which was given to the General Dynamics’ unit in August, provides a one-year base period plus six one-year options. Since 2011, DHS has been transforming St. Elizabeth’s as its main headquarters to consolidate the department’s offices across the National Capital Region, GDIT said.
GDIT added that since consolidation started, DHS has been receiving the company’s support to modernize the department’s information technology in areas related to such requirements as networking, telecommunications and building management.
For the new task order, GDIT’s deliverables include technology updates, cybersecurity and logistics support.
According to Tom Bruno, GDIT vice president and general manager for homeland security and telecommunications, the task order calls for providing new buildings with reimagined protocols for a secure, reliable and cost-efficient IT infrastructure compatible with evolving DHS mission requirements.
GDIT continues its long-standing DHS partnership and looks forward to leveraging its technology expertise to support the department’s consolidation goal, Bruno added.
