General Dynamics unit to upgrade DHS network

General Dynamics One Source has won a five-year contract potentially worth $62 million from the Homeland Security Department to upgrade DHS' Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN), which shares sensitive but unclassified data among federal, state, local and private sector organizations.

The HSIN Next Generation (NextGen) will be a secure and trusted national platform for information management, collaboration capabilities and search services with enhanced capabilities, DHS said in a statement. The department also said the upgraded network will help users meet their collaboration and information-sharing needs.

DHS' plans to consolidate the more than 100 aging Web portals on the legacy HSIN into the new enterprise collaboration Web portal.

The HSIN NextGen task order award happened late last month and was announced today. It is worth $18 million initially and up to $62 million over five years, DHS said in a statement.
