Northrop Grumman wins $228 million INS contract

The Immigration and Naturalization Service this week awarded a five-year, $228 million contract for IT services to Northrop Grumman Corp.

The contract, a blanket purchasing agreement, calls for Northrop Grumman Information Technology of Herndon, Va., to support the primary IT infrastructure and provide IT support services for more than 100 INS offices in the United States and at several overseas offices.

The agreement was awarded through the General Services Administration's Federal Technology Service on behalf of INS. It covers about 40,000 desktop PCs, servers and LANs supporting more than 1,400 sites.

The agreement is one of the company's largest contracts with the federal government, said Jim Perriello, president of government solutions for Northrop Grumman IT.

The company will provide a range of IT support services, including hardware maintenance; desktop and server management; asset management; infrastructure deployment; design, planning, installation and certification of the infrastructure cable plant; daily IT security operational support; and IT training. The company also will maintain ADP operations.
