State Department Awards GDIT $35OM Contract for IT Services
The Department of State has awarded General Dynamics Information Technology a $350M contract to provide IT services for the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs.
The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract includes a one-year base period and four one-year option periods.
"GDIT's work with the INL will deliver new technical capabilities to counter-narcotics trafficking, money laundering and other transnational criminal activities," said Paul Nedzbala, the senior vice president of GDIT's federal civilian division.
Under the terms of the contract, GDIT will help improve the bureau's counter-narcotics and anti-crime capabilities, enhance its ability to deploy new technologies, improve information sharing and expand enforcement capabilities abroad, Federal Times reported.
“Our solution will directly support INL’s critical mission to minimize the impact of international crime and illegal drugs, protecting both U.S. citizens at home and our partners abroad,” Nedzbala said.
The contract continues GDIT's two-decade partnership with the State Department, Executive Gov reported.
According to data from USAspendings .gov, the State Department has spent about $550M on services from General Dynamics in the last 12 months.
In June, GDIT won a $2B contract from the Bureau of Diplomatic Security to manage the agency's global technical security supply chain.
GDIT is the publicly traded IT arm of General Dynamics. It specializes in enterprise IT, network systems integration, professional and technical services, training and simulation, health, wireless, aerospace and aviation, and defense, according to the company's LinkedIn profile.
