Leidos Wins Potential $6.5B US Military Info Network Support IDIQ

Jeff Brody

Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) has won a potential 10-year, $6.52B contract to help the Defense Information Systems Agency operate, maintain and secure a military telecommunications infrastructure.

The Global Solutions Management – Operations II award covers technical support services for the DoD Information Network/Defense Information System Network throughout a five-year base period that will commence on Jan. 1, the Pentagon said Tuesday.

“Leidos is proud to modernize and operate the information network that connects warfighters and government leaders around the world,” said Gerry Fasano, Leidos Defense Group president. “We will continue to work alongside DISA to align our network solutions with their mission evolution.”

The recompete indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract also includes a pair of two-year option periods and an additional one-year option that would extend performance through Dec. 31, 2030.

“DISA is a critical support agency for our troops,” said C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger, U.S. congressman representing Maryland’s 2nd congressional district. “This contract is vitally important to ensuring our Armed Services and Department of Defense can communicate uninterrupted and securely worldwide. I congratulate Leidos and all of its employees on this award and thank them for their continued support of DISA.“

DISA released the final GSM-O II solicitation notice in October and received three bids for the IDIQ. Contract work will occur primarily within the continental U.S., but the department said it may identify locations outside CONUS for other support services.

”DISA is an important agency supporting our national security decision makers, warfighters, and partners around the world,” said Anthony Brown, U.S. congressman representing Maryland’s 4th district. “I congratulate Leidos on this award to strengthen the Department of Defense’s information network, and I will continue to support the workers who help accomplish DISA’s combat support mission every day.”

GSM-O II is a follow-on to the Global Information Grid Services Management-Operations contract originally held by the information systems and global solutions business that Leidos acquired from Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT).
