By Light Professional IT Services has acquired government information technology services contractor Phacil for an undisclosed sum.

Phacil’s “diversified IT capabilities across a wide customer base make it an excellent fit with our company, and will allow us to expand our offering to better serve our customers,” Bob Donahue, CEO and founder of By Light, said in a statement published Monday.

McLean, Va.-based Phacil provides systems engineering, integration and operations support; software services; cloud and managed services; cybersecurity; artificial intelligence platforms; and other IT services to defense and federal civilian agencies.

The transaction came a year after ByLight purchased IT services provider Axom Technologies.
