Army Cyber Command (ARCYBER) has awarded a new support work deal to information technology firm Perspecta [PRSP] worth potentially up to $905.7 million, the company said Wednesday.
Under the deal, which includes a one-year base period and four one-year options, Perspecta is tasked with providing cyber operations support to ARCYBER headquarters, Joint Forces Headquarters-Cyber and U.S. Cyber Command’s service components.
“Perspecta’s deep cyber expertise in researching and developing adaptive and innovative solutions for a constantly evolving cyber landscape is unparalleled,” Perspecta CEO Mac Curtis said in a statement. “This unique skillset, combined with our key personnel who understand the ARCYBER mission, are key differentiators for Perspecta. We are honored to bring our breadth of cyberspace operations experience to our ARCYBER customer and are energized to get to work.”
Perspecta is a relatively new company, officially forming last June, and has already picked up additional cyber support contracts with U.S. Cyber Command and DARPA.
The company formed as a merger between DXC Technology’s [DXC] U.S. public sector business and defense firms’ Vencore and KeyPoint Government Solutions.
