Harris assists State with outsourcing services

Harris Corp. will provide outsourcing services to the State Department under a three-year task order that has a potential value of $8 million.

The award calls for Harris to provide desktop support, help desk support, knowledge management, training and asset management services for up to 37,000 desktops at 28 offices of State’s Bureau of Information Resources Management.

The contractor provides similar IT support services to several State Department bureaus.

Harris is a member of Pragmatics Inc.’s team, which was selected by the department to execute the Vanguard 1.0 program. The program launches the IT consolidation initiative within State’s Information Resources Management bureaus, said Wayne Lucernoni, vice president of civil federal operations at Harris IT Services.

Pragmatics, of McLean, Va., awarded the task order to Harris under its $99 million Hybrid IT Services for State contract that was announced in September. It is expected to be the first in a series of IT consolidation initiatives planned at State, Harris officials said.

Harris, of Melbourne, Fla., ranks No. 13 on Washington Technology’s 2008 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
