EDS, an HP company, has been won a contract renewal potentially worth $34 million over five years from the U.S Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) under the ENCORE II contract vehicle to continue support for its Multinational Information Sharing (MNIS) program.
Under the contract, EDS and its partner, Harris Information Technology Corporation (HITS), will provide systems engineering and technical assistance (SETA) support to enhance the efficacy of MNIS. MNIS’s mission is to ensure joint forces share operational awareness contributing to enhanced intelligence, informed decision-making, and mission success.
The MNIS program facilitates sharing of encrypted information through a single platform for effective communication and enhanced teamwork among Department of Defense components, Combatant Commands and eligible foreign nations.
Dennis Stolkey, senior vice president of U.S. Public Sector at EDS, said “For the last five years, EDS has provided SETA-type support to DISA, helping the Multinational Information Sharing program office to align cutting-edge technologies to their mission requirements. We are proud to continue to…facilitate the flow of vital information to meet the emerging needs of our defense forces.”
