The Defense Department said Thursday that CGI Federal and DRS Laurel Technologies can compete for task orders under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract alongside five other companies.

The Navy has already named BAE Systems, General Dynamics‘ (NYSE: GD) C4 systems business, Globe Technical Systems, Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) and Serco‘s U.S. arm as contractors on the program in August.
