Defense awards IT services subcontract to Alion

The Defense Department has awarded a one-year, $1.4 million subcontract to Alion Science and Technology Corp. to provide IT services to DOD's Joint Spectrum Center.

Under the subcontract, Alion of McLean, Va., will maintain the center's management databases that support the Defense Department's wireless frequencies management operations worldwide. The company also will provide a range of information assurance and network operations support services for the center.

The prime contractor is Pragmatics Inc. (also of McLean, Va.), a privately owned company that provides IT services to federal military and civilian agencies.

The subcontract supports a task order under the Defense Systems Agency's Next Generation Engineering Contract awarded in April 2005. Alion has provided similar services to the Joint Spectrum Center under a different contract for many years.
The center is the Defense Department's research hub for use of electromagnetic spectrum for national security and military objectives.
