Leidos won a Homeland Enterprise Information Technology Secure Services and Support follow-on contract to improve the Department of Homeland Security’s networks.
The single-award contract has a 1-year base period of performance and six 1-year options, with a maximum value of $918 million.
“This contract continues our strong relationship with DHS,” said Roy Stevens, Leidos Intelligence Group president. “By supporting cross-agency intelligence sharing and secure collaboration for federal and civilian agencies, we’ll help DHS accomplish their mission of safeguarding the homeland.”
Under the contract, Leidos will provide DHS with program management, operations and maintenance, systems engineering, training, information assurance and classified and unclassified cloud computing capabilities integration and services. This work is intended to evolve the Homeland Secure Data Network and the Classified-Local Area Network.
Leidos will also enhance or replace existing network components with newer technologies for higher performance.
“Our team will be focused on delivering capabilities like quantum resistant cryptography, artificial intelligence (AI) operations, robotic process automation and classified cloud service integration,” Stevens said.
Leidos plans to use an AI for IT operations platform, and provide cybersecurity services like innovative network penetration testing methodologies, tools and reporting, to reduce the risk of network intrusion and increase network reliability and security.
The new award continues Leidos’ work for DHS under the Secure Enterprise Network Systems, Services, & Support contract.
