Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) has won a potential $412,240,000 contract to provide software developers and product teams to the Defense Department for blue badge and cardholder support.
The Defense Information Systems Agency awarded the indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract, which includes one base year and four option years, the Defense Department said Monday.
DISA intends for Microsoft’s teams to provide source code and other resources such as knowledge bases and problem resolution assistance from product developers.
Work will require the Defense Department to access rights to Microsoft’s closed-source code, the Pentagon says.
Microsoft will primarily perform work inside the continental U.S. but the Pentagon said support services may also be required at overseas locations.
