Northrop Grumman wins $30 million Pentagon e-commerce deal

Northrop Grumman Corp. of Los Angeles has been awarded a blanket purchase agreement worth $30 million over three years by the Defense Information Systems Agency to continue providing e-commerce infrastructure support, the company announced Sept. 4.

Under the blanket purchase agreement, Northrop Grumman IT will expand the features of the Defense Electronic Business eXchange, or DEBX, an application that serves as the hub of the Defense Department's electronic commerce infrastructure by processing and streamlining business transactions. Under the terms of the contract, Northrop Grumman IT will expand security and translation options in order to accelerate integration of emerging technologies and support the department's modernization programs.

"Through expansion of the DEBX, Northrop Grumman IT is accelerating DoD information technology modernization programs by bridging the technology gap between emerging and historical applications," said Barry Rhine, president, Defense Mission Systems, Northrop Grumman IT, who noted that the company has been performing similar services for seven years. "As the DoD continues to integrate business systems through the DEBX, the concept of 'the DoD enterprise' will become reality."

Work on the contract will be performed primarily at Northrop Grumman IT facilities in Reston and Newport News, Va., Austin, Texas, and Columbus, Ohio.
