Titan Corp. won a task order contract from the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command that authorizes Titan to continue providing linguist services and support for critical contingency missions worldwide, Titan officials said today.
The new six-month contract has two three-month option periods, and is worth up to $400 million if all options are exercised. Under the previous INSCOM contract, San Diego-based Titan has provided interpreters to the Army in Iraq, according to company spokesman Wil Williams.
Because of work it did under that contract in Iraq, Titan has been drawn into the scandal involving the abuse of prisoners at the Abu Ghraib prison. Contractors allegedly were involved in some of the abuse. A Titan spokesman has said that the company will take action if the Army finds that any of its employees committed any wrongdoing.
Titan has provided linguist services to INSCOM since 1999, according to the company.
Titan provides information and communications systems and services to the Defense Department, intelligence agencies and other federal agencies. The company employs about 12,000 people and has annual revenue of about $2 billion.
