The task order is valued at approximately $695 million over a five-year period, and is inclusive of a three-month transition, one-year base period and four one-year options.

Specifically, General Dynamics has been tasked with delivering enterprise information technology, communications and mission command support services to:

  • USAREUR headquarters;
  • US North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) operations, and
  • Other forward deployed Department of Defense (DoD) organisations and Regionally Aligned Forces (RAF) in Europe.

General Dynamics previously worked in collaboration with the US Army in Europe through the USAREUR G6 Theater Mission Command Contract (TMCC) II task order awarded in 2016.

The EMITS task order is expected to build on previous projects by delivering technical expertise in cyber security solutions in a bid to further optimise critical mission command networks and systems enabling USAREUR operations to advance its global mission.

“GDIT looks forward to the opportunity to continue supporting the USAREUR G6 and its growing need for expanded theater communications and greater interoperability to enhance Army and allied mission command systems,” Amy Gilliland, GDIT president, said.
