Pinkerton Computer Consultants Inc. has won a five-year, $6.5 million contract with the Drug Enforcement Administration to upgrade the agency's Web architecture, the company announced this week.
Under the contract, Pinkerton of Trevose, Pa., will perform a major architectural upgrade to the DEA's existing Web infrastructure. In addition, the company will provide database and applications support to projects under development within the agency.
The company's Fairfax-based Government Solutions Division will perform the contract work.
When the project is completed, the availability of data and the speed with which it can be shared will be significantly enhanced, the company said. The contract award expands Pinkerton's U.S. security work.
Pinkerton, a provider of information technology, services and solutions, has about 1,000 employees and annual sales of $91 million, according to Hoover's Online of Austin, Texas.
