State Department awards IT BPA

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.
