GSA awards $121m contract for crop insurance support

The General Services Administration awarded a $121 million task order to Science Applications International Corp. of San Diego for IT support services for the Agriculture Department to improve its national crop insurance program.

GSA's Federal Systems Integration and Management Center awarded the performance-based task order under its governmentwide Millennia IT contract.

The contract will help USDA's Risk Management Agency maintain their legacy systems, re-engineer their current IT environment and also operate and maintain their hardware/software infrastructure. The services aim to help the crop insurance program transform into a broad-based safety net for farmers.
