GDIT to Support the State Department's Supply Chain Security
General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) will be supporting the U.S. State Department's global technical security supply chain effort, under a $2 billion single-award contract with the Bureau of Diplomatic Security (DS), Countermeasures Directorate. The contract includes a base period of five years and a five-year award term, the company reported.
Under the contract, GDIT will provide the State Department, U.S. Embassies and other posts worldwide with integrated technical security systems, engineering and solution development, hybrid supply chain and distribution management, as well as a global logistics and transportation network.
The contract continues the agency's supply chain security efforts, which GDIT has supported since a June 2012 contract award, the company stated. “This award demonstrates GDIT’s commitment to providing world-class solutions for our customers and expanding the broader security mission of federal agencies,” said GDIT President Amy Gilliland. “We are excited to continue supporting one of the federal government’s largest supply chain and logistics operations.”
