NTT DATA Services will provide managed information technology and security services to the Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois under a $15.4 million contract.
The company said it will support IT operations maturity work at Argonne and help the research center plan comprehensive infrastructure modernization projects.
Contract work also includes recommending best practices and standardizing processes to ensure continual service improvement, maintaining a program to develop the laboratory workforce and establishing a single-point service desk.
Tammy McChain, senior vice president of the federal health and civilian business at NTT DATA, said the company seeks to transform Argonne’s IT operations through innovation and program updates.
Argonne conducts science and engineering research in areas such as particle physics, energy storage, environmental science and medical technology.
