General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) information technology business unit will take in up to $2.2 billion under its U.S. State Department contract for global supply chain management logistics and technology services, The Washington Business Journal reported Friday.

Last month, a Federal Business Opportunities post announced GDIT had won a $228.58 million initial order with the department.

Jill Aitoro reported Friday that a department official confirmed the Bureau of Diplomatic Security award to develop a “cradle-to-grave supply chain management solution” is worth up to $2.2 billion.

The FedBizOpps post indicates the contract has one base year and four option years.

The unit will help the department’s logistics management office distribute more than 5, 000 products to 147 domestic and 285 overseas facilities.

GDIT will also repair equipment and provide technical assistance and life-cycle support for equipment, tracking and technology development.

Other services will include testing and evaluation for commercial-off-the-shelf equipment, system integration, documentation and training materials, customer assistance and an online storage area for documents.

The company also holds $500 million in contracts to help the Office of Personnel Management address needs in areas of infrastructure, cloud computing, unified communications and cybersecurity.
