National Guard seals deal for RCAS, training support

The National Guard Bureau today awarded a $115 million competitive task order to SRA International Inc. of Fairfax, Va., for a wide range of advanced IT products and services to the bureau's CIO and Army Reserve unit.

As systems integrator, SRA will provide lifecycle maintenance of the Reserve Component Automation System.

They study at more than 300 multimedia classrooms around the country via a terrestrial network and satellite links.

The task order, awarded under the Transportation Department's Information Technology Omnibus Procurement II contract, is for five years.

The SRA team includes 19 subcontractors. The services they will provide include project management, information assurance, systems engineering and integration, software and database development, integration of commercial products, operations and maintenance, and analysis and implementation of new technologies.
