Northrop Grumman Corporation has won a $2.63 billion task order from the General Services Administration to implement a campus-wide IT infrastructure for secure communications and operations at the Department of Homeland Security St. Elizabeths headquarters in Washington, D.C.
Under the contract, Northrop Grumman will design, install, test, operate and maintain a seamless, integrated and secure IT solution throughout the DHS-consolidated headquarters at the Washington, D.C.-based St. Elizabeths campus. The company will provide a top-level security and information platform for the department to execute its homeland security missions, including interfacing with the departments’ cybersecurity resources.
“The Department of Homeland Security has a vital role in protecting America’s cyber assets and working collaboratively with public, private and international entities to secure the cyberspace domain,” said Linda A. Mills, corporate vice president and president of Northrop Grumman’s Information Systems Sector. “Northrop Grumman will leverage its broad expertise to bring the St. Elizabeths campus and the department world-class cybersecurity capabilities that will effectively enhance the security of the U.S. critical infrastructure.”
Work will be conducted over a five-year base period with a two-year option and an additional three-year option period.
