US Army Extends Bigbear .ai Contract to Develop Force Management Solution

The U.S. Army has awarded Columbia, Maryland-based Bigbear .ai a six-month, $8.5 million follow-on to a prime contract for the Global Force Information Management system.

Bigbear .ai will work with Deloitte, Appian and Ignite IT to continue building GFIM. The contract extension also requires Bigbear .ai to migrate the system’s prototype to the cARMY cloud.

GFIM is a cloud-based set of programs aimed, in part, at automating the Deploy to Redeploy and Retrograde of Material business process. Lori Mongold, the Army’s GFIM capabilities management officer, explained that D2RR is the service branch’s main data processing capability for determining needs and resources.

Ryan Legge, Bigbear .ai’s president of integrated defense solutions and a Potomac Officers Club member, noted that GFIM could drive data-driven decision-making and real-time visibility. He said automating D2RR could lead to improved readiness, global force management and operations, Bigbear .ai said.

The phase two award for GFIM was a nine-month, $14.8 million sole-source contract awarded in September 2022. Bigbear .ai received the initial contract in 2021.
