ManTech International Corp. will provide IT services to the Homeland Security Department under a four-year contract valued at $5.9 million.
The award calls for ManTech to provide DHS's Office of Science and Technology with IT services to strengthen the congressionally mandated Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technology Act of 2002, according to a Nov. 4 company announcement.
The contractor has supported DHS since the inception of the so-called SAFETY Act and will continue to provide systems engineering, engineering, regulatory compliance, testing, as well as development and business process management support.
The SAFETY Act includes a program that provides legal liability protections for providers of anti-terrorism products and services, the ManTech announcement said.
ManTech International, of Fairfax, Va., ranks No. 22 on Washington Technology’s 2011 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
