ManTech (NASDAQ: MANT) was awarded five task orders valued at $6 million from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to provide enterprise IT services. The awards, from the USPTO Office of Chief Information Officer, are part of the USPTO Infrastructure, Design, Engineering, Architecture and Integration (IDEAI) contract, a multiple award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity, labor hour type contract that ManTech won in August 2008. ManTech is one of three companies awarded contracts under the IDEAI program, which has a one year base, with four option years and a total ceiling of $95 million.
