Booz-Allen Scores $136M Anti-Drug Contract

Booz-Allen & Hamilton Inc. of McLean, Va., has been awarded a task order to support information technology services for the Defense Information Systems Agency's Anti-Drug Network Program, the General Services Administration announced July 11.

The contract, valued at $136 million over eight years, was awarded by GSA's Federal Systems Integration and Management Center. Under the task order, Booz-Allen will provide support, services and upgrades to Adnet, an information network for U.S. government agencies whose mission involves fighting drugs or drug-related crimes.

"The partnership between DISA and Fedsim has been instrumental in the success of Adnet over the past decade," said Tim McCurdy, director for the Federal Systems Integration and Management Center. Booz-Allen has been supporting Adnet since 1993.

Adnet employs real-time secure communications to more than 35 participating agencies, including the FBI, CIA, U.S. Customs Service, the Defense Department, several embassies and state and local law enforcement agencies.

The network features newsgroups, e-mail alerts, electronic bulletin boards and video teleconferencing abilities. Adnet also offers data analysis tools, the facility to coordinate and produce reports by geographically separated groups and intranet Web sites for each organization to publish information.

This contract continues Booz-Allen's work from a now-completed 1996 $28 million task order that called for upgrading the then-narrowband data trading network into a fully distributed enterprise information management system.

For this contract, Booz-Allen was picked from 11 FTS Millennia contract holders. Millennia is a $25 billion contract vehicle for multiple-award, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity IT systems integration work.
