The prime manufacturer’s IT subsidiary has been awarded a system modernisation contract by the Defence Intelligence Agency.

General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT), a business unit of General Dynamics, has secured an IT system modernisation contract from the United States’ Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA), which involves the provision of global engineering support to DIA’s core IT infrastructure to include system design, architecture, testing plans, and security accreditation.


The Infrastructure Services Enterprise Engineering (ISEE) task order, which forms part of the Enhanced Solutions for the Information Technology Enterprise (E-SITE) indefinite-delivery, has an estimated value of US$100 million and includes a base period of one year, four option years, and one six-month option.

The task order is part of a broader initiative to develop the IT infrastructure of the US Department of Defence Intelligence Information System (DODIIS).

"GDIT is excited to continue our 35-year relationship supporting DIA and their complex national security mission,” Deb Davis, vice president and general manager, mission solutions and service sector ­­­for GDIT's Intelligence and Homeland Security Division, said.

“The ISEE award is a true testament to GDIT’s ability to develop and deliver enterprise IT Infrastructure solutions at scale.

“As a mission support leader and trusted partner for DIA’s IT backbone, we look forward to supporting the ongoing modernisation of the DoDIIS Enterprise."


The task order is also designed to directly support DIA’s strategic goals for core IT services and further its global mission.

Earlier this month, the DIA also awarded a US$690 million task order contract to Northrop Grumman.

The Northrop Grumman contract involves the delivery of actionable intelligence and enhanced decision superiority through the Transforming All-Source Analysis with Location-Based Object Services (TALOS) program.

As part of the TALOS task order, Northrop Grumman will serve as the enterprise module integrator for MARS, using innovative artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies to develop a data processing system capable of ingesting and managing large volumes of data to inform warfighting decisions.
