DARPA awards $111m tech services deal

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has signed a five-year, $111 million seat management and services contract with RS Information Systems Inc.

Terms of the contract call for RSIS of McLean, Va., to furnish IT services and infrastructure systems for the agency. The contract expands on work RSIS has done for the agency over the last five years.

RSIS will deliver technology assistance and network infrastructure support with various types of workstations, servers and applications. The contract covers a wide range of IT services, systems infrastructure and secure computer network defense support.

Because the agreement is performance-based, DARPA establishes standards and optimal levels of service that the company must meet to receive payments. The contract includes service-level objectives that can be changed to meet shifting IT capabilities and technologies, said RSIS President and CEO Rodney P. Hunt in a statement.

RSIS currently supplies a team of 85 IT professionals and technology to the agency.
