Peraton has been awarded a spot on a $7.5 billion Defense Information Systems Agency multiple award contract, enabling it to compete for task orders to design, integrate and optimize Defense Department information technology capabilities, systems and solutions.
Peraton was one of 14 companies added to the unrestricted portion of DISA’s Systems Engineering, Technology, and Innovation, or SETI, contract vehicle. Through the contract, DISA will award task orders of up to $500 million to optimize existing and legacy IT systems and encourage innovation for agile, cost-effective solutions that meet DOD’s evolving mission requirements.
The work covered by the SETI contract is intended to complement DISA’s previously-awarded $17.5 billion Encore 3 commodity IT services vehicle, which was awarded on a low-price, technically acceptable basis. Gus Bontzos, president of Peraton’s Defense and Electronic Warfare sector, said that DISA’s best-value approach highlights the importance of getting the best technology and most innovative solutions to DOD customers.
“Through our role on the SETI contract, Peraton is honored to continue our more than 30 years of support to the critical DISA mission,” Bontzos said in a statement. “As an awardee of this contract through a ‘best value approach,’ the importance of offering the best available technology and agile solutions across the DoD is highlighted.”
The contract allows Peraton to offer next-generation cyber, spectrum and IT engineering support services and solutions that increase DOD’s readiness, reduce risk and enable successful outcomes across the air, land, sea and electronic warfare domains, Peraton said.
