Perspecta said Thursday it has booked a potential six-year, $166 million contract for IT support and acquisition services to the Senate amid the company's efforts to secure more civilian market successes.
This contract is the Senate’s fourth iteration of its Information Technology Support Contract and includes an initial two-year base period by up to four individual option years. ITSC IV is new work for Perspecta, the company said.
During Perspecta’s most recent earnings call in August, CEO Mac Curtis outlined the company’s plan to reinvigorate its civilian business and position it for larger bids to see the same success as in the defense and intelligence area.
The Senate win is one of those, along with bids Perspecta is waiting to hear decisions on from the Veterans Affairs Department and the outcome of a protest over a Labor Department award the company won.
An exact number of bids on the Senate ITSC IV contract is unknown, but an August 2018 contracting notice indicates Perspecta was one of four potential primes that were qualified sources. CSRA (now part of General Dynamics IT), Chenega Technical Innovations and Integration Technologies Group were the other three.
Services will support workstations, server hardware, operating system software and application system software for the Senate in Washington, D.C. and offices in other states for lawmakers, committees, leadership and other staffers.
