Perspecta Wins Spot on $700M DHS Blanket Purchase Agreement
Perspecta is set to provide national security investigative services for the Department of Homeland Security under the terms of a multiple-award blanket purchase agreement.
The BPA has an aggregate value of $700 million and a five-year period of performance, Perspecta said Tuesday.
The award extends Perspecta’s partnership with DHS for investigative support services. The Chantilly, Virginia-based company has been supporting DHS and other agencies within the intelligence and defense communities with background investigative services for more than 18 years.
Agencies like the DHS require background investigations for vetting individuals to make sure that they are well suited for positions of trust.
In a statement, Jennifer Swindell, senior vice president and general manager of Perspecta’s trusted solutions business group, touted her team’s ability to assess individuals who are selected to be part of the U.S. government’s trusted workforce.
“Our team has an enduring commitment to provide top quality investigations across all case types and helps agencies like DHS verify the trustworthiness of their employees to ensure continuity in fulfilling their missions,” she said.
Perspecta has been winning several contract awards as of late.
The company was recently awarded an $18.5 million contract to support the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s Resilient Networked Distributed Mosaic Communications program.
Two other contracts, collectively valued at $8.1 million, were also awarded to Perspecta for support in the 5G experiments at Naval Base Coronado in California and Hill Air Force Base in Utah.
