Paul Nedzbala, senior vice president of the federal civilian division at General Dynamics Information Technology (NYSE: GD), has said GDIT will help the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration modernize supercomputing infrastructure through a potential 10-year, $553 million contract.
Work covers the modernization, operation and maintenance of a high-performance computing system that supports NOAA’s research and development activities, General Dynamics said Thursday.
CSRA, which General Dynamics acquired in April, performed the work under a contract that was originally awarded in May 2010.
The follow-on, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a nine-year base period and one option year that could run through June 13, 2028.
“We are honored to continue our work with NOAA and support this critical element of their computing infrastructure,” Nedzbala said.
