Parsons to Provide Cyber Operations Support Under $91M CYBERCOM Contract
The U.S. Cyber Command has awarded Chantilly, Virginia-based Parsons a potential five-year, $91 million prime contract to support the J9 Program Executive Office Cyber and Joint Cyber Warfighting Architecture Integration Office.
Mike Kushin, president of defense and intelligence at Parsons, said the company will support the PEO’s analysis, integration, development and delivery efforts. According to Kushin, Parsons will deliver software-enabled systems, sensors and tools needed for full-spectrum cyber operations.
The contract is cost-plus-fixed-fee, with a one-year base period and four one-year options, Parsons said Thursday.
The CYBERCOM award adds to several contracts the company has received from the U.S. defense and intelligence sectors in recent months.
In October, the Defense Threat Reduction Agency awarded Parsons a potential five-year, $53 million task order for counter-weapons of mass destruction proliferation support. Parsons said it will provide technologies, equipment and services that would help DTRA improve its WMD detection, interdiction and recovery capabilities.
In September, the Intelligence Community awarded the company a potential seven-year, $160 million classified contract for hardware and software development.
