Parsons to Deliver Cyberspace Operations Services to CYBERCOM Under New Contract
The General Services Administration has awarded Parsons a one-year, $21 million cost-plus-fixed-fee contract to provide the U.S. Cyber Command with command, control, communications, computers and capabilities development support. Specific tasks include professional services; information technology lifecycle management; systems engineering; cybersecurity; and research, development, testing and evaluation.
The award extends efforts that began in 2016, Parsons said Wednesday. Mike Kushin, executive vice president of the high consequence missions segment, said that Parsons has facilitated CYBERCOM full-spectrum cyberspace operations since the command was instituted.
Parsons’ original deal with the command was a five-year, multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity prime contract that also involved the delivery of training support and joint operations planning.
Another company providing cyberspace operations support to CYBERCOM is Peraton, which holds a four-year IDIQ with a $109 million ceiling to enhance the capabilities of the Directorate of Operations, Joint Task Force ARES and Cyber National Mission Force.
The Reston, Virginia-based IT services company is also responsible for managing joint planning operations between the command and its partners as well as strengthening efforts to secure the Department of Defense Information Network.
CYBERCOM recently granted subordinate unified command status to CNMF, a joint force that comprises 2,000 service members, intelligence community personnel and civilians. CNMF is in charge of conducting offensive and defensive cyberspace operations.
