State Department Selects GDIT for $3.3B Global Support Strategy 2.0 IDIQ
The Department of State has awarded General Dynamics Information Technology a spot on the potential $3.3 billion Global Support Strategy 2.0 indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract vehicle.
As one of three prime contractors on the contract vehicle, GDIT intends to provide overseas consulate support services to the Bureau of Consular Affairs for the issuance and application of visas.
Work for the IDIQ builds on support provided under the GSS 1.0 contract, including fee collection, document delivery and mission-focused enterprise information technology services, GDIT said.
The IDIQ has a one year base period and can be extended for nine more years.
Paul Nedzbala, GDIT senior vice president for the federal civilian division, said the company looks forward to expanding its 20-year partnership with the State Department as a provider of visa-related services.
“The Bureau of Consular Affairs is the department’s public face for the global community, and this contract will provide responsive and efficient consular services to facilitate travel to the United States for millions of people,” Nedzbala added.
GDIT is the IT service management arm of General Dynamics. The business unit offers cloud services, artificial intelligence solutions and cyber services to clients across the aviation, health, defense, space, civil, intelligence, homeland security and weather industries.
Besides GDIT, PAE was also selected for the GSS 2.0 IDIQ. In an announcement, PAE said it plans on delivering integrated business process offerings to support worldwide processing of non-immigrant and immigrant visa applications.
