Unisys scores $460M contract to modernize border protection systems

Unisys Corp. has won a $460 million task order contract with the Homeland Security Department to support its Border Enforcement and Management Systems Program Office.

Under the five-year contract, which has a one-year base and four option years, Unisys will operate, manage and enhance systems used to improve security at the U.S. borders and ports of entry, the company said.

Unisys will work on the office’s existing systems, and may also develop new systems to meet evolving border security requirements, the company said in a release.

The Border Enforcement and Management Systems Program Office is part of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Office of Information and Technology and is responsible for supporting the design, development, testing, implementation, training and maintenance of  the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s information technology systems, Unisys said.

The office, known as BEMS, also supports other Customs and Border Protection systems such as its public website, personnel and financial management systems, and applications that track and record border intercepts and seized property, the company said.

This contract builds on a relationship that Unisys has had with U.S. Customs and Border Protection for more than a decade, the company said.
