Unisys Awarded Task Order to Provide IT Support to the U.S. Army Logistics Innovation Agency
Contract Extends Unisys 10-Year Relationship with the Logistics Innovation Agency
BLUE BELL, Pa. – The U.S. Army Logistics Innovation Agency (LIA), a military organization that works to improve Army and military logistics readiness, has awarded Unisys (NYSE: UIS) a task order to provide IT support and services to assist the agency in executing its mission. The task order has a one-year base value of approximately $2.3 million, followed by two one-year options, each valued at approximately $2.4 million and exercisable at the government’s discretion – for an estimated total value of $7.1 million if all options are exercised.
The task order was awarded under the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) ENCORE II contract and is a recompete of a contract Unisys has held since 1999.
The U.S. Army LIA provides logistics innovation, experimentation and technology to find ways to improve military logistics processes. Under the new task order, Unisys will continue to administer LIA unclassified and classified networks and video teleconferencing systems, and manage and administer IT hardware to help agency employees perform their jobs securely and without interruption. Unisys will also continue to provide help desk services, graphics design support and selected application development – including ongoing development and management of agency business process applications.
In addition, Unisys will continue to manage LIA’s Logistics Transformation Platform, a data warehouse of logistics data used in the development and testing of new solutions, as well as systems in the Logistics Processing Center, a proof-of-concept environment for new logistics applications and solutions.
“This award represents a continuation of our longstanding relationship with the U.S. Army Logistics Innovation Agency, providing support to its mission to continually improve military readiness through innovative logistics technology,” said Jim Geiger, managing partner, Department of Defense, Unisys Federal Systems. “We look forward to extending our decade-long relationship with the LIA.”
This task order was awarded to Unisys under DISA’s $12.225 billion ENCORE II multiple award indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract. Unisys was one of the 26 vendors selected by DISA last year to compete for task orders under the ENCORE II program.
