The U.S. Army has awarded BAE Systems a one-year, $11.7 million contract to provide information technology (IT) services to the Army Cyber Command (ARCYBER) to assist with the operation, maintenance, and technical aspects of the ARCYBER enterprise IT environment, the company reported on Thursday.

“We’re pleased to continue supporting ARCYBER’s G-6,” said Peder Jungck, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Intelligence Solutions business. “Our trusted, cleared IT and cyber experts are dedicated to meeting the needs of our customers and ultimately assisting warfighters with the defense of cyberspace and information operations missions.”

Under the contract, BAE Systems will provide system integration and management, including network and systems administration, as well as cyber and IT engineering support at ARCYBER Headquarters in Fort Gordon, Georgia.

BAE Systems will leverage its Federated Secure Cloud approach and processes to implement and maintain ARCYBER’s Multiple Independent Levels of Security (MILS) virtual desktop infrastructure. 

The company will operate and maintain the Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Information Management/Enterprise Information Technology Service Management environment for ARCYBER. 

The contract award will expand BAE Systems’ history of IT support within the federal government. In Feb. 2020, the company secured a contract from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to update information technology infrastructure and maintain enterprise systems.

BAE Systems has supported the agency’s Office of the Chief Information Officer over the past two decades and will expand the scope of support through the FEMA Operations and Maintenance contract, which includes network, help desk and telecommunications services.
