General Dynamics and Leidos have won positions on a potential five-year, $200 million contract to perform technical services for the Army’s geospatial technology systems.
Five bids were submitted for the Geographic Research, Integration, Development and Support contract also known as GRIDS III. The Defense Department said Monday the contract covers non-commercial technical services to help coordinate, integrate and synchronize geospatial information requirements and standards across the Army.
Leidos keeps its work as the incumbent on the predecessor $200 million GRIDS II contract awarded in 2012 and General Dynamics is a newcomer, according to Deltek data.
Awardees will also develop geospatial enterprise-enabled systems for the Army and other Defense Department and non-DOD entities, plus provide direct geospatial support to warfighters.
