Salient Completes Acquisition of Federal Civilian IT Provider

Salient Federal Solutions Inc. has completed its acquisition of McLean, Va.-based federal information technology provider ATS Corp., which Salient will distribute assets from to help form two new business units.

Fairfax, Va.-based IT and engineering firm Salient said it made the deal to expand its operations in the federal civilian sector.

It will offer expanded civilian offerings through the new Civilian Mission Critical Solutions unit and a to-be-added Software Engineering Solutions unit, which will provide agency-wide IT infrastructure, cloud computing and large-scale systems integration.

The company will also establish a new center of excellence for its civilian sector operations.

ATSC is a service provider for case management, federal financial systems, border and port security and health information systems.

CEO Brad Antle said in a release that the acquisition aims to complement Salient’s defense, homeland and intelligence offerings.

The acqusition gives the company additional civilian sector contracts including government-wide acquisition contracts and indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity task orders.

The company also gains positions on multiple award schedule programs such as the General Services Administration’s Alliant vehicle and a U.S. Army human resources solutions contract.

Additionally, ATSC will also provide a financial service platform called Rational toolset and blue force tracking and personnel incident management solutions.
