General Dynamics Information Technology has won the $267 million Guard Enterprise Cyber Operations Support contract to support the Army National Guard.
The contract has a 1-year base period and three option years.
“This contract will advance the Army National Guard’s networking capabilities and enable its soldiers to be better connected and prepared in support of critical missions,” said Brian Sheridan, senior vice president for GDIT’s defense division.
The GECOS program supports the Army National Guard Defense Department information network’s IT infrastructure, cybersecurity, application hosting and associated services. This enterprise network, one of DOD’s largest, provides soldiers with access to the internet and securely allows them to connect with other databases and networks.
Under this new work, GDIT will provide the Army National Guard with an integrated network and security operations center. From this site, GDIT will operate, maintain and secure the enterprise network, in classified and unclassified environments.
“As a long-time partner of the Army National Guard, we are looking forward to implementing innovative solutions to advance its mission-readiness,” Sheridan said.
GDIT will also leverage specific IT service and zero trust solutions to provide program management, cybersecurity, and IT operations and maintenance.
