Northrop lands DHS network

A team led by Northrop Grumman Corp. won a $350 million contract to build the Homeland Secure Data Network for transmitting classified information. The Homeland Security Department in February solicited bids from vendors on the General Services Administration Millennia contract.

The HSDN project will absorb tens of millions of dollars this year, and spending will increase in future years, a senior department official said.

Under the contract, which has three base years and two one-year options, Northrop Grumman's IT sector will replace existing DHS top-secret network services now supplied by the Defense Department's Secure IP Router Network.

The Northrop Grumman team bested Computer Sciences Corp. and Science Applications International Corp. of San Diego.

The Northrop Grumman team includes BearingPoint Inc., CHM Inc., ITS Services Inc., Level Three Communications Inc., Lockheed Martin Corp., Omen Inc., Raytheon Co., SRA International Inc., Telos Corp. and Touchstone Consulting Group.
