BLUE BELL, Pa., Dec. 21, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- The FBI awarded a contract to Unisys (NYSE: UIS) to compete for task orders under the Information Technology Supplies and Support Services (IT Triple S) contract for information technology hardware, software and services such as applications modernization, integration, and operations and maintenance.
Under the indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract, Unisys will have the opportunity to compete to provide services and products to the FBI in support of the agency's mission to protect the United States against terrorist and foreign intelligence threats, and to enforce the country's criminal laws.
Unisys is one of 46 companies awarded an IT Triple S IDIQ contract capped at $30 billion over eight years. The contract is open for use by any organization within the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ).
The contract award builds on Unisys work for the FBI and DOJ, such as the FBI's Next Generation Combined DNA Index System (CODIS), the DOJ Asset Forfeiture Management program, and the Bureau of Prisons Inmate Telephone System. In addition, Unisys in the past two years has won awards from DOJ for exceeding its goals for partnering with small businesses, a key requirement of IT Triple S.
"This contract represents an opportunity for Unisys to work with the FBI to provide our experience and expertise in support of a broader array of the agency's mission," said Venkatapathi "PV" Puvvada, vice president and managing partner, civilian agencies, Unisys Federal Systems.
