Leidos Secures Spot on DIA’s $12.6B IT Contract Vehicle

Leidos has been awarded a spot on the Defense Intelligence Agency’s potential $12.6 billion Solutions for the Information Technology Enterprise III contract vehicle.

SITE III is a 10-year multiple-award contract that covers cybersecurity, application development and sustainment, connectivity, network services, enterprise computing, cloud services and other IT services.

Under the terms of SITE III, Leidos may now vie for task orders that support the IT requirements of DIA and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. The contract serves as a centralized IT acquisition vehicle aimed at meeting global security requirements, Leidos said Thursday.

The company said it will support DIA and NGA’s efforts through system design, development, fielding and sustainment of global intelligence and command and control assets.

SITE has double the value ceiling and period of performance of its predecessor, the Enhanced Solutions for Information Technology Enterprise contract.

E-SITE was valued at $6 billion and had a five-year period of performance. It was awarded in 2015 to 50 contractors.

Vicki Schmanske, president of Leidos’ intelligence group, said the SITE III award demonstrates the government’s trust in the company’s ability to secure sensitive assets and critical infrastructure.

“Our customers are constantly faced with unrelenting threats and adversaries, and this award allows us to help combat these threats,” Schmanske added.

Leidos is an engineering and science solutions provider that works with clients from the defense, intelligence, civil and health markets.

The company recently also won a potential $480 million contract from U.S. Customs and Border Protection to provide technologies for non-intrusive inspection of commercial vehicles at ports of entry.
