CSRA (NYSE: CSRA) has closed its acquisition of NES Associates in a push to help government clients accelerate adoption of new information technology platforms for their digital transformation efforts.

CSRA President and CEO Larry Prior first announced the deal at the company’s 2017 fiscal-year earnings call held May 24.

Prior, an inductee into Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 for 2017, said in a statement released Wednesday that Alexandria, Virginia-based NES will add network engineering platforms and service offerings to CSRA’s portfolio as the latter seeks large IT modernization opportunities in the federal market.

The closure comes three weeks after CSRA won a potential $498 million contract to support the first phase of the Defense Department‘s milCloud 2.0 private cloud infrastructure transition project.

NES currently holds prime positions on the IT Schedule 70; Global Information Grid Services Management-Engineering, Transition and Implementation; and Seaport-e contract vehicles.
