U.S. Customs and Border Protection has awarded government-services firm Perspecta a potential $75 million blanket purchase agreement contract to provide network management services to the agency’s network operations center.
The BPA represents new work for Perspecta, the company announced, and carries a maximum potential period of performance of eight years.
Under the deal, Perspecta will make sure the operations center — which is the focal point for network troubleshooting, performance monitoring and coordinating networks under CBP’s IT environment —remains up and running at all times.
Perspecta said it wil use IT service-management tools, automation and analysis and use what it called a more proactive and predictive posture to resolve issues before they impact the end user.
“This award harnesses our long-standing and multi-faceted relationship with DHS,” said Mac Curtis, president and CEO of Perspecta. “I am honored that the agency has selected Perspecta to operate, maintain and improve critical enterprise infrastructure and our team is excited for the opportunity to expand our partnership with CBP. We look forward to leveraging our patented monitoring and analytics tools, combined with our deep knowledge of network architecture and operations, to run a robust network in support of CBP’s critical mission.”
