CSRA captures $2.4B Groundbreaker IT recompete

CSRA has won the $2.4 billion Greenway contract with the National Security Agency for IT infrastructure services. The win keeps a significant portion of its work under the predecessor Groundbreaker contract.

CSRA and its Eagle Alliance joint venture have won the potential 10-year, $2.4 billion enterprise IT services portion of the National Security Agency’s recompete of its Groundbreaker contract.

The company announced the win -- without naming the customer or specific contract -- in an 8-K Securities & Exchange Commission filing after markets closed Sept. 5.

Through its predecessor Computer Sciences Corp., CSRA is the incumbent on the contract as it initially won the $5 billion Groundbreaker award in 2001. 

NSA took a different tack with the recompete and broke Groundbreaker into pieces. Greenway covered IT infrastructure services and CSRA formed the Eagle Alliance joint venture that includes Northrop Grumman. CSRA owns 79 percent of the joint venture.

Groundbreaker represents close to 7 percent of CSRA's annual revenue. The win of Greenway was key to CSRA's prospects of 2 percent organic growth for its current fiscal year that ends March 31.

CSRA was reportedly competing against a team led by General Dynamics for Greenway.

The company also is pursuing other portions of the Groundbreaker recompete and is on teams lead by Hewlett Packard Enterprise, CACI International and ManTech International.
