DHS awards $395.5M data center support contract to General Dynamics
The Department of Homeland Security has awarded a data center support services contract to General Dynamics Information Technology.
In a notice on Sam.gov the agency announced the details of the contract, which has an 18-month ordering period, and a maximum ceiling value of $395.5M.
Through the contract, General Dynamics will continue to provide existing DC1 services, which consist of a government-owned contractor-operated enterprise data center, infrastructure-as-a-service environments, and co-location facilities.
The services will be provided on an interim basis until a Data Center and Cloud Optimization contract is awarded in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 and a contractor is in place.
It is the latest contract win by General Dynamics, which late last year was re-awarded the Defense Enterprise Office Solution (DEOS) contract for cloud-based email and collaboration tools across the DOD, following a drawn-out procurement battle.
