GDIT wins $73M contract to boost diverse Navy systems

General Dynamics Corp. will provide IT and other services to the Navy under a five-year indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract that has a potential value of $73.3 million if all options are exercised.

The Hull, Mechanical and Electrical Machinery and Systems support award comes from the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division, the Navy’s leading maritime technology authority that oversees full life-cycle support for maritime technologies, according to a Nov. 21 company announcement.

General Dynamics IT will support hull, mechanical and electrical machinery and systems on Navy vessels and select land-based sites, as well as other federal agency and federally contracted vessels.

These services include prototype engineering, design, development, testing, performance specifications and data analysis, system fault tree and safety analysis, computer programming and software engineering, the announcement said.

The company also will provide system training development and on-site technical support, alteration services, integrated logistics and staging.

The work will be performed primarily in Norfolk, Va., San Diego and Philadelphia, in addition to locations in Hawaii, Guam, Japan, Bahrain and Italy.

General Dynamics Corp., of Falls Church, Va., ranks No. 5 on Washington Technology’s 2011 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
