Harris Corporation has struck a five-year deal with the Air National Guard (ANG) to provide managed information technology solutions to the Air National Guard Network and Regional Operations and Security Centers.
The one-year contract has four options totaling five years and a value of $26 million. Harris will provide Tier III support for all facets of the enterprise IT system such as applications, infrastructure, vulnerability assessment, directory services, boundary protection and messaging.
“ANG Tier III support is critical to the operation and protection of the Air National Guard enterprise to ensure they meet the needs of its very large, distributed population, ” said John Heller, vice president and general manager, Harris IT Services.
The Air National Guard will make the move from a decentralized network management model to a centrally managed environment. Harris IT Services, along with subcontractors TechTeam Government Solutions, Inc. and NetApp, Inc., will provide support to the Air National Guard during the transition and consolidation with integration services at 11 locations in the U.S.
“We are very pleased to partner with TechTeam and NetApp on this vital program and look forward to delivering on the necessary technological expertise during this pivotal time for the Air National Guard, ” said Heller.
