Peraton has won a potential 10-year, $2.69 billion contract from the Department of Homeland Security for assistance with data center and cloud optimization efforts.
Under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, Peraton subsidiary Perspecta Engineering will facilitate and run the DHS’ hybrid computing environment through a range of hybrid compute operations services, the company announced Wednesday.
Peraton Chairman, President and CEO Stu Shea welcomed the opportunity to continue helping the department with its national security objectives. “This award further demonstrates our ability to deliver adaptable, managed enterprise IT services and support DHS’ goal,” the six-time Wash100 Award recipient continued.
Peraton and Perspecta’s responsibilities under the DCCO contract will include implementing automation, optimizing and evolving technologies throughout the HCE. Efforts will build on the companies’ specialties in information technology security and managed services.
The HCE is composed of a network of technological enterprises such as a data center, colocation sites, and both private cloud services and commercial cloud programs overseen by the DHS.
Perspecta merged with Peraton in May 2021. The subsidiary is currently working under a $473.8 million other transaction agreement from the Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency for application development support services.
