GDIT Wins $89.5M HPC Task Order From Environmental Protection Agency
Virginia-headquartered General Dynamics Information Technology announced that it was awarded the High-End Scientific Computing II Support Services task order by the Environmental Protection Agency. The program seeks to provide researchers and scientists with the supercomputing hardware, modeling and data visualization capabilities needed to solve complex research problems and support the agency’s mission to protect human health and the environment, GDIT said Friday.
In a statement, the company revealed that the task order has a total value of $89.5 million with a one-year base and six option years. Specifically, the deal seeks to equip EPA scientists with applications for atmospheric modeling, computational fluid dynamics, bioinformatics, computational chemistry and statistical modeling, among others.
As part of its obligations under the task, GDIT said it will provision, maintain, and support the agency’s high-performance computing environment, as well as deliver infrastructure support, environmental and life sciences modeling, and scientific consulting to EPA investigators. The company will also provide technical support for scientific computing projects performed in on-premise, cloud or hybrid environments.
Kevin Connell, GDIT’s vice president and general manager for science and engineering, said the latest task order will provide the company’s scientific computing experts and its HPC Center of Excellence the opportunity “to meaningfully advance EPA’s critical mission.” He added that General Dynamics has been supporting the agency since 1978.
GDIT said that the latest task further reinforces its role as the largest high-performance computing systems integrator for the federal government. The company added that in 2021, it built and deployed two of the world’s fastest supercomputers for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Weather Service.
