General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) has been awarded a $350 million, indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract by the U.S. Department of State (DOS) Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) to support its Western Hemisphere Program (WHP), the company reported on Thursday.
"GDIT's work with the INL will deliver new technical capabilities to counter-narcotics trafficking, money laundering and other transnational criminal activities," said Senior Vice President Paul Nedzbala for GDIT's Federal Civilian Division.
GDIT has partnered with INL WHP to strengthen international counter-narcotic, anti-crime and foreign partner law enforcement capabilities. The contract includes a base period of one year with four 12-month options.
Under the contract, GDIT will deliver IT services designed to enhance INL's counter-narcotic and anti-crime interdiction capabilities, increase DOS capacity to deploy new technology and improve information sharing among partners and regions.
Additionally, the company will expand the law enforcement capability of foreign government partners. With the contact, GDIT has expanded its expertise with federal agencies. The company has been a mission-integrated partner with the State Department for more than 20 years.
"Our solution will directly support INL's critical mission to minimize the impact of international crime and illegal drugs, protecting both U.S. citizens at home and our partners abroad," added Nedzbala.
