Defense manpower center awards support contract

The Defense Manpower Data Center, the agency responsible for the Defense Department's Common Access Card program, has awarded a five-year, $72 million contract to Telos Corp. of Ashburn, Va., for IT systems support.

Under the contract, Telos is responsible for supporting the data center in four program areas:

  • Real-Time Automated Personnel Identification System, the desktop application used to issue the common access and non-common access identification cards to Defense personnel and family members at more than 600 locations worldwide


  • Biometric Identification System, which puts biometric technologies at the entry gates of military bases and facilities


  • Automated Repatriation Reporting System, a deployable tracking system used by DOD and the State and Health and Human Services departments to monitor noncombatant personnel returning to the United States after being evacuated from a foreign country


  • Noncombatant Evacuation Operations Tracking System, another deployable tracking system, used to manage the evacuation and transport of noncombatant U.S. citizens and nationals being evacuated from a foreign country.


  • In December 2002, DMDC awarded a separate 5-year contract to Telos and its subsidiary Xacta Corp. to conduct turnkey certification and accreditation on all data center systems.
