GAO taps SRA to continue network management, upgrade work

CIO Tony Cicco

The General Accounting Office today announced it has awarded SRA International Inc. a six-year, $105 million follow-on contract to continue upgrading the agency's IT infrastructure.

GAO hired the Fairfax, Va., company in 1998 under the General Services Administration's 9600 Contract, a $52 million task order for network and IT upgrades. GAO recompeted the effort through GSA's Millennia governmentwide acquisition contract.

'SRA helped us turn this organization around,' GAO CIO Tony Cicco said. 'We had some fairly definitive measurements that showed the quality of work they were able to bring to the workplace. We were asking for the same metric evaluation of competing vendors. To me, the impact SRA had in getting us closer to the customer satisfaction level we want to achieve is a model for use in government.'

GAO broadened the scope of the new contract to include managing more of the network, including the agency's WAN, communications systems, videoconferencing and data applications.

SRA also will continue to maintain GAO's LAN and provide security engineering, intrusion detection, continuity-of-operations planning, enterprise architecture development, software engineering and network infrastructure management.

SRA's team includes Beyond Print Inc. of Germantown, Va.; Business Edge Inc. of Vienna, Va.; Harris Associates of Fairfield, Pa.; NCI Information Systems Inc. of McLean, Va.; Peace Technology Inc. of Laurel, Md.; PEC Solutions Inc. of Fairfax, Va.; and RGB Technology Inc. of Reston, Va.
