General Dynamics' information technology unit won a $27,091,748 Navy contract to provide information technology engineering for meteorology and oceanography work, the Defense Department announced Thursday.
The company will also provide mission sustainment services to the Navy’s Meteorology and Oceanography Command, located at Stennis Space Center in Mississippi.
Contract funds are appropriated under the Navy’s operations maintenance fund and are set to expire at the end of fiscal year 2012.
The Pentagon said it received two offers during a competitive procurement process.
Sixty percent of work will occur in Stennis and the rest in Monterey, Calif.; Washington; San Diego; and Saudi Arabia.
The Pentagon expects work to finish on April 1, 2013.
The NAVSUP Weapon Systems Support in Mechanicsburg, Pa. is the contracting activity.
In January, GDIT won a potential $26.2 million contract to develop applications for the Interior Department’s oceanic energy program.
