BAE Systems Information Technology of Arlington, Va., recently completed the first task order under a massive information technology contract signed in February with the U.S. National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), according to a Nov. 4 BAE Systems press release.
BAE Systems was one of 14 companies awarded indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts under the NGA’s Total Application Services for Enterprise Requirements (TASER) program. The agency expects to spend no more than $1 billion on the program over five years.
Under the first task order, BAE Systems moved a server-based mission application to a virtual data center in an effort to increase reliability and reduce operating costs, the press release said. BAE Systems spokeswoman Despina Froumis was unable by press time to provide the value of the task order.
