The Transportation Security Administration has awarded General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems a $4.7 million contract for the first year of a multi-year award for Phase II of the Security Technology Integrated Program.
The contract could be worth as much as $13.3 million, if all options are exercised.
Under the contract, General Dynamics will provide software development, maintenance and integration support to TSA and the manufacturers of transportation security equipment. In addition, General Dynamics will provide overall program management as TSA expands STIP to airports nationwide.
“General Dynamics is committed to working with TSA as it achieves STIP’s main goals of improving security, resource management and operational effectiveness,” said Lou Von Thaer, president of General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems. “Our standards-based solutions, designed and developed with an open architecture approach, are tailored to meet the unique requirements of the transportation security enterprise.”
Most of the work under this contract will be performed in Fairfax, Va.
