DynCorp came away the winner of the first portion of the FBI Trilogy project, which the law enforcement agency is using to modernize its information technology infrastructure and applications.
DynCorp of Reston, Va., outbid teams lead by Computer Sciences Corp., Lockheed Martin Corp., and Raytheon Co. to land the $132 million, three-year task order, a spokesman for the General Services Administration said. The Trilogy project is being awarded under the Millennia contract, a broad IT services vehicle managed by GSA.
Under the task order, DynCorp will upgrade the FBI's worldwide technology networks, computer systems and selected software applications, according to the FBI. The work includes installing enterprise management systems and enhancing data security.
A second task order for user applications may be awarded as soon as the end of this week, a GSA spokesman said. He would not comment on the potential value of the second task order.
The FBI is using the Trilogy project to upgrade and modernize the systems that field offices and FBI headquarters use to share and exchange data. FBI special agents and support personnel in the field offices will be the first to receive the new equipment, FBI Director Louis Freeh said in a May 4 statement.
The project, in the works for several years, has previously been called the Information Sharing Initiative and eFBI.
