Perspecta has been awarded a potential $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 Tuesday. The contract has a one-year base with six one-year option periods.

“This award is a true testament to our strong capabilities and proven performance working with civilian, defense and Intelligence Community agencies supporting the Department of State’s mission,” said Rocky Thurston, senior vice president and general manager of Perspecta’s civilian, state and local business group.

Perspecta will assist the Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs with enterprise infrastructure support to plan, engineer, implement, enhance, maintain and operate the global consular affairs IT environment.

The company will also provide proactive automated technical offerings to improve the end-user experience while improving cost optimization and productivity. Work will support the bureau’s headquarters office in Washington, D.C. and more than 350 Consular Affairs locations around the world.

“We look forward to establishing a trusted relationship with the Bureau of Consular Affairs, and building a long-standing partnership with the Department of State for years to come,” Thurston concluded.

Prior to the CAEIO program task order, Perspecta was awarded a potential five-year $25M task order last October to continue applied research, maturation, experimentation and validation work for the service branch for the United States Army as the Applied Research and Experimentation Partner for the cybersecurity Collaborative Research Alliance program.

The company will continue to support the CRA with applied research and experimentation and assist with the accelerated transition of this research into the field. Specifically, the company will leverage and extend its CyberVAN testbed to provide sophisticated capabilities for cyber experimentation in tactical, as well as strategic, environments.
