IBM Receives $275M IDIQ to Help Secure Defense Semiconductor Supply Chain

IBM (NYSE: IBM) received a potential $275M contract from the Defense Microelectronics Activity to help secure the supply chain that provides semiconductor products and services to the military.

The Department of Defense said Tuesday IBM will work to establish manufacturing flows at contractor fabrication facilities as part of the Trusted Foundry Access II program and an open commercial environment for procurement of classified and trusted mask and wafer fabrication.

The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract also covers a wide range of semiconductor offerings, subject matter expertise and consulting services.

DoD expects the program to increase the security of the commercial environment that facilitates government access to technology manufacturing approaches for both classified and trusted systems.

Contract work will take place in Vermont, New York, Maryland, Quebec and Idaho.

DMEA is obligating $15.6M in fiscal 2019 funds for the first five task orders under the IDIQ.
