Microsoft Awarded $927M DoD Blue Badge Tech Support Contract

Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) has received a five-year, $927 million contract to provide enterprise technical support for blue badge cardholder services at the Defense Department.

The department said Tuesday that Microsoft’s software developers and product teams will provide proprietary resources, source code, consulting and knowledge bases to the Defense Information Systems Agency under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.

Work will occur primarily inside the continental U.S.

DoD will have access to Microsoft’s closed-source code licensed under exclusive right of the company to support the department’s mission requirements.

Microsoft won a similar project worth $412 million in June 2013 and extended the Redmond-based company’s blue badge and cardholder support services to DISA under a $162.8 million modification awarded in August 2015.
