BigBear.ai announces Army, NSA contract awards
On November 22, Columbia, MD-based BigBear.ai announced that it has been awarded two new government contracts. The United States Army has awarded the company one of two Global Force Management (“GFIM”) Phase 1 Prototype contracts. GFIM, part of PEO EIS’s Army Data and Analytics Platforms (“ARDAP”) portfolio, collaborates with the Army G-3/5/7 to manage and deliver this prototype contract. In addition, BigBear.ai subsidiary, PCI, has been awarded a five-year, single award contract by the National Security Agency (NSA).
Dr. Reggie Brothers, BigBear.ai chief executive officer, said, “Together, these two new contract awards demonstrate our growing momentum among both new and existing customers as we approach our anticipated public listing later this year. We are proud to support our customers in executing their critical missions to keep our Nation safe.”
Army Global Force Management Contract
Under the terms of the GFIM contract, BigBear.ai will develop and demonstrate a platform that integrates force structure, readiness, mobilization, and requirements validation to meet service and Global Force Management requirements. This integrated planning, programming, and production capability will serve as the single-entry point for conducting force management activities for an Army “at rest” and “in motion.” The solution will be a transformational approach to the Army’s ability to enable its Deploy to Redeploy and Retrograde of Materiel end-to-end business process from the enterprise to the tactical edge.
BigBear.ai will deploy a No-Code/Low-Code (NC/LC) workflow automation platform in a configurable, scalable environment to fulfill the Army requirements. The resulting transactional capability will deliver automated workflow, robotic process automation, and AI/Machine Learning (ML) capabilities while saving person-hours, reducing IT spend, and subsuming a portfolio of 13 legacy systems.
Ryan Legge, BigBear.ai Analytics Sector President, said, “BigBear.ai and our valued teammates are truly excited to partner with the Army G-3/5/7 and PEO EIS on this transformational program. When fully operational, this solution will support 160,000 users, including senior leaders and combatant commanders from company through division levels, enabling the Army to achieve decision dominance to make data-driven force structure decisions faster and with confidence.”
Under the terms of the NSA contract, BigBear.ai subsidiary PCI will support the development and implementation of strategic priorities and operations by gathering, interpreting, and translating federal executive-level strategic guidance into actionable initiatives aligned to appropriate organizational mission areas.
Dr. Brothers stated, “This award continues the decade-long relationship that BigBear.ai has had supporting NSA in the development and implementation of strategy, plans, and guidance to gain a decision advantage for our nation and to deliver next generation capabilities and solutions.”
