Leidos Resumes Air Force IT Support Contract Work; Gerry Fasano, Daniel Voce Quoted

Jeff Brody

Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) has restarted work on a potential five-year, $450M contract for information technology support to U.S. Air Force customers throughout the National Capital Region.

The company said Wednesday it halted contract work due to a bid protest that was filed after the announcement of the award in September 2019 and was recently withdrawn.

The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract covers IT operations support at the classified and unclassified levels for Air Force components as well as other military users in the Washington, D.C. metro area such as the Joint Chiefs of Staff and National Military Command Center.

Tasks encompass enterprise IT, program management, cybersecurity and system engineering services.

"We are honored to support 'no-fail' missions operated out of the NCR by keeping military decision makers securely connected," said Gerry Fasano, president of Leidos's defense group and a 2020 Wash100 awardee.

Daniel Voce, senior vice president for enterprise cyber and solutions at Leidos, said the company intends to apply its process automation and optimization to support Air Force missions.
