The State Department awarded a blanket purchase agreement for information technology professional services to SI International Inc., the company announced yesterday.
SI International estimates the value of the task orders under this five-year contract will exceed $50 million.
Under the agreement, the Reston, Va., company will provide technical and analytical support, software maintenance, training and systems development and integration.
The company's work will support computer-based systems for immigrant visa-processing and interagency data exchange in the department and among other federal agencies.
'It's a major contract,' said company spokesman Alan Hill. 'The Department of State is a very important client of ours, and this win demonstrates our focus on mission-critical work.'
SI International has assisted the State Department since 1997 under a similar contract.
SI International provides information technology and network solutions to the federal government. The company had $149.4 million in revenue in 2002, and employs 1,200 people. Gail Repsher Emery writes for Washington Technology magazine.
