Leidos has won a potential six-year, $684 million task order to help operate and maintain a pair of Homeland Security Department networks to support a DHS information sharing initiative.
Reston, Va.-based Leidos beat out four other offers to win the cost-plus-fixed-fee task order awarded on Aug. 31. Leidos unseats incumbent Northrop Grumman, who won the predecessor task order in 2011 for a potential seven-year term worth up to $1.1 billion, according to Deltek data.
The order for Leidos has an initial base year followed by up to five one-year options. DHS tasked Leidos to support the agency’s effort to facilitate secure and classified information sharing across communities of interest such as intelligence and law enforcement including other agencies at the federal, state, local and tribal levels..
DHS’ Secure Enterprise Network Systems, Services and Support effort covers two networks that encompass almost 13,500 users, according to an industry day presentation from September.
Work under SENS3 includes areas such as security, optimization, enhancement, design, engineering, architecture, integration, configuration, testing and expansion.
The General Services Administration’s Federal Systems Integration and Management Center awarded the order to Leidos under the Alliant contract vehicle on behalf of DHS. Northrop also received its order through Alliant.
Leidos’ work will take place primarily in Lorton, Va. and other DHS locations.
