Verizon Wins $40M DISA Telecommunications IDIQ

Verizon‘s (NYSE: VZ) business services unit has won a $40, 787, 599 contract to provide telecommunications services for a Defense Department research and engineering computer network.

The Pentagon said work under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract will support the department’s High Performance Computing Modernization Program Office.

Work under the base period will occur between June 19, 2012 and June 18, 2013, and could extend through Dec. 18, 2013 if the Defense Information Systems Agency exercises a six-month option.

Scott Air Force Base, Ill. is the contracting activity for the firm-fixed-price, sole-source contract.

Verizon also is on a General Dynamics-led (NYSE: GD) team that will provide the U.S. Army with cloud computing services under a potential $249.9 million contract.

HP Enterprise Services (NYSE: HPQ) and Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) also hold positions on that contract.
