Justice Dept. picks up $65M IT services contract option
The Department of Justice’s CIO is picking up the first option year of a $65 million IT management and technical services contract with Rockville, Maryland-based small business Hill Associates Corp.
In a release Wednesday, company President Kelsey Hill said the firm was “honored” to be asked to continue and extend its program and project management, systems engineering, and technical support services for the Justice Department’s CIO office.
The existing contract work is focused on the department’s wide area network, voice modernization and other network infrastructure initiatives. The new option will include “innovative cloud and mobility based services, information security, data center consolidation and end user computing,” according to the statement.
“This is an exciting time to be involved with IT as advances in cloud, mobility and next-generation networking technologies provide a foundation for transformational initiatives,” Hill said. “Furthermore, the requirement for DOJ and all government agencies to transition their GSA Networx telecommunications contracts to the NS2020-EIS contract in the coming years will accelerate change.”
The company says the contract could be worth more than $65 million if all option years are exercised, but provided no other details. Neither they nor the Justice Department responded to requests for comment.
