Engility has received a potential five-year, $28 million contract for cybersecurity services to Defense Department acquisition and weapons systems.
This effort seeks to help protect the government throughout the manufacturing supply chain and defend the military's acquisition programs and technologies from foreign adversaries. The contract supports DoD's Damage Assessment Management Office and Joint Acquisition Protection and Exploitation Cell, Engility said Monday.
Engility will work with agencies across the counterintelligence, intelligence and law enforcement communities to assess existing information exploitation in U.S. defense systems, address vulnerabilities and mitigate future attacks.
Small business Systems Planning and Analysis will act as subcontractor for the effort.
