Best Dealmaker

Making two or more deals

Buyer: CSRA

Targets: NES Associates and Praxis Engineering

Value: $105 million for NES and $235 million for Praxis

Why: These were the first deals CSRA made after its creation through the spinoff and subsequent merger of CSC’s U.S. government business into SRA International.

NES brought skills in IT infrastructure, network operations, data center and applications-related services, particularly with defense customers.

Praxis solidified CSRA’s footprint with the National Security Agency and other intelligence agencies for which it provides software and systems engineering. Praxis’ work focuses on mission application development and engagement, meaning it has deep relationships at the agencies and intimately supports their mission.

Honorable mention: Accenture’s acquisitions of Phase One Consulting, iDefense from VeriSign and Endgame Federal Services.
