Harris Corp. (NYSE: HRS) will compete with eight other contractors for up to an estimated $750 million in information technology services for the U.S. State Department‘s Bureau of Consular Affairs, the company announced today.
The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has one base year and four one-year options. SAIC announced its position in June.
Harris said contract work could cover IT development, modernization and enhancement and software maintenance to support automated systems that process the bureau’s business activities including visa, passport and American citizen services.
The consular IT system enhancements will help the State Department deliver improved services to American and foreign travelers across the U.S, according to Harris.
Harris will subcontract work to at least eight other firms, including AT&T Government Solutions.
Harris currently supports over 250 State Department sites worldwide and has delivered consular support to the department for more than 16 years under its Consular Affairs Support Services contract.
