October 28, 2016
The Defense Department is creating a chief innovation officer position, Secretary Ash Carter announced Friday.
David Stegon was a staff reporter for FedScoop and StateScoop from 2011-2014.
The Defense Information Systems Agency awarded seven vendors a spot on the Global Information Grid Services Management-Engineering, Transition and Implementation contract valued at $1.4 billion, according to the Department of Defense.
The indefinite-delivery, indefinite quantity contract will be used to provide the Department of Defense a range of network engineering and support services.
The winning vendors will compete for business for at least the next two years as the contract has a two-year base period and one two-year option and a one-year option.
