General Dynamics Books $695M Task Order to Continue US Army IT Support in Europe; Amy Gilliland Quoted

General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) will continue to help U.S. Army Europe manage information technology mission command systems and networks under a potential five-year, $695M task order from the General Services Administration.

GSA issued the USAREUR Enterprise Mission Information Technology Services award – also known as EMITS – during the fourth quarter of 2020 with a transition period of three months, one base year and four option years, General Dynamics said Tuesday.

The company will provide enterprise IT, mission command and communications support to the service branch’s European headquarters, NATO, regionally aligned forces and other U.S. defense organizations that operate in the continent.

Amy Gilliland, president of GDIT and three-time Wash100 awardee, said the business will work to address theater communications and system interoperability requirements of the Army and its allied forces.

The EMITS task order also covers cybersecurity work and builds upon the company’s USAREUR G6 Theater Mission Command Contract II in 2016.
