BAE Systems Inc, the British contractor’s U.S. subsidiary, has secured a potential $300M contract to help the Federal Emergency Management Agency update information technology infrastructure and maintain enterprise systems.

The company said Thursday it has supported the agency’s Office of the Chief Information Officer over the past two decades and will expand the scope of support through the FEMA Operations and Maintenance contract — which includes network, help desk and telecommunications services.

Mark Keeler, vice president and general manager at BAE’s integrated defense solutions unit, said the company looks to agile IT approaches to help ensure the integrity of mission-critical agency systems.

“FEMA leads our nation’s emergency management preparedness and response and we are proud to support them in their important mission,” Keeler added.

The agency consolidated six legacy contracts into the new award.
