The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of the Assistant Secretary for Administration and Management and Office of the Chief Information Officer has awarded Perspecta a potential $277M prime contract with a one-year base and six one-year option periods for operations and maintenance support of the enterprise general support system, the company reported on Tuesday.

“Perspecta’s proven ability in managed IT services and bold approach to leveraging emerging technology to help our government customers work smarter and faster will serve us well on this program. We are excited to develop our partnership with the U.S. Department of Labor and support its goal of achieving a unified IT infrastructure,” said Rocky Thurston, senior vice president and general manager of Perspecta’s civilian, state and local business group.

Perspecta will provide DoL OCIO with enterprise operations and maintenance support services to manage, operate and secure a diverse set of IT infrastructures, applications, services and technology-enabled offerings. Work will support more than 4K end users in the DOL’s OASAM OCIO headquarters office in Washington, D.C. and 16K end users throughout the United States.

“At Perspecta, our people thrive under the high-pressure environment of solving mission-critical challenges,” added Thurston.

Perspecta was also recently awarded a $810M task order by the General Services Administration Alliant 2 contract vehicle to support the U.S. Department of State Consular Affairs Enterprise Infrastructure Operations program, the company announced on Jan. 21.

The company will continue to provide proactive automated technical offerings to improve the end-user experience while improving cost optimization and productivity. Perspecta will work on both contracts to improve the technology within a variety of U.S. government departments. Work will support the bureau’s headquarters office in Washington, D.C. and more than 350 Consular Affairs locations around the world.
