NGA awards Leidos prime contract for IT management
Leidos of Reston, VA announced on October 12 that it was awarded a prime contract by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) under the Information Technology Enterprise Management (ITEMS) User Facing Services (UFS) program. This single-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, firm-fixed price contract has a five-year ordering period with a total contract ceiling of $988 million.
The ITEMS portfolio provides NGA with a bridge to the future–delivering critical services to mission users, harnessing the capacity of current and emerging information technology (IT) services, and using geospatial intelligence to support time-sensitive missions.
Leidos, with its enterprise IT experience, worldwide reach and NGA mission knowledge, will support the customer with their ITEMS UFS needs. The company will effectively and efficiently transition UFS from current NGA contracts, lead the UFS operations and sustainment and continuous improvement of UFS, and implement special orders to support mission needs without disrupting daily operations. The company will also help posture NGA to transition to future Intelligence Community Desktop Environment (DTE) service offerings.
“This opportunity strengthens our partnership with NGA, and we look forward to continuing our collaboration in support of the GEOINT mission,” said Leidos Defense & Intelligence President Tim Reardon.
