Harris tasked with modernizing Army medical centers’ IT networks

Contractor will provide upgrades at 23 Army facilities

Harris Corp. will upgrade communications systems for the Army under a one-year contract worth $10.6 million.

The U.S. Information Systems Engineering Command, which is responsible for network upgrades to military health system facilities, made the award to improve communications and IT networks at 23 Army Medical Treatment facilities.

Harris will provide IT wired and wireless network modernization support, delivering a robust network with the connectivity, reliability, data integrity, and information security medical professionals need to provide high quality care, a Harris statement said today.

The company also has been awarded several network upgrade contracts by the Air Force and Air National Guard and the U.S. Medical Information Technology Center.

The Harris team includes subcontractor Federal Resources Corporation.

The contract was awarded under the nine-year, $20 billion Information Technology Enterprise Solutions-2 Services contract vehicle, the preferred method of contracting for services and supplies for the Army, Harris said.

Harris Corp., of Melbourne, Fla., ranks No. 13 on Washington Technology’s 2010 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
