Chantilly, Va.-based TASC announced Jan. 23 the company has been awarded a contract by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) to serve as its Application Operations Service Provider (AOSP).
Under this contract, TASC will manage the business and technical aspects of soliciting, screening and acquiring Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) applications that pass U.S. Government (USG) criteria. The contract has one base year and three, one-year option periods, and is worth $25 million if all options are exercised.
“TASC has a long history of successfully supporting NGA’s critical programs,” TASC’s Intelligence Solutions and Analytics Sector Senior Vice President Amanda Brownfield said. “We are pleased to support NGA through the AOSP program, helping it bridge the gap between traditional government contracting procedures and non-traditional businesses. We hope to generate interest across a broad range of developers and bring NGA innovative products that fully address its security, performance and mission requirements.”
The AOSP program addresses NGA’s need to acquire mobile, web and desktop GEOINT applications as rapidly, cost-effectively and efficiently as possible. This approach simplifies evaluation and provisioning of apps to a USG-hosted environment through a range of services. It also saves taxpayers money and boosts private enterprise.
