Leidos Wins Potential $171M DIA Linguist Operations Support Contract

Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) has won a potential five-year, $170.8 million contract to provide linguist operations support for a Defense Intelligence Agency center that coordinates interagency efforts to examine data from seized foreign paper and electronic documents.

The Defense Department said Friday the company will provide foreign language translation and content exploitation services to the Bethesda, Md.-based National Media Exploitation Center.

Work is scheduled to commence on Aug. 1 and could extend through July 31, 2023, if the DIA exercises all options.

The Virginia Contracting Activity in Washington, D.C. received eight offers for the cost-plus-award-fee contract via a full and open competition.

NEMC was instituted in late 2001 to support the DIA, FBI, CIA and National Security Agency in the analysis of digital media, equipment and files the U.S. military and intelligence community have obtained in foreign countries.
