General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT), a business unit of General Dynamics, announced that it has received a $518 million task order award from the U.S. Army Communications Electronics Command (CECOM) to provide logistics, sustainment and maintenance services for joint U.S. and coalition forces worldwide within the Army Field Support Brigade (AFSB) regions.
“We’re excited to accelerate work on this important program which brings together expertise from across General Dynamics, focusing our collective hardware and software systems solutions on providing CECOM with an innovative and cost-effective approach to supporting the Warfighter’s mission,” said Amy Gilliland, president of GDIT.
The task order was provided under the Responsive Strategic Sourcing for Services Multiple Award indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract awarded in April 2021 to a General Dynamics joint venture including GDIT, General Dynamics Mission Systems, General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems and General Dynamics Land Systems. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced in December that work could start following the dismissal of two contract award protests. The Worldwide Field Support (WFS) task order includes support for current and future C5ISR systems, equipment, and ancillary operational requirements and expands GDIT’s Army logistics footprint by providing hardware and software field support to warfighters around the globe.
