General Dynamics IT Business to Deliver Cloud Services to Navy

General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) will deliver commercial cloud services for the U.S. Navy to accelerate cloud adoption. The Navy’s Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems (PEO EIS) awarded CSRA LLC, a managed affiliate of GDIT, a $22.4 million blanket purchase agreement. The award includes a one-year base period with four one-year options, which if exercised would bring the estimated cumulative value to $96 million.

Senior Vice President Leigh Palmer, head of GDIT’s Defense Division said the Navy will gain access to premium commercial cloud services through GDIT’s strategic relationships with Microsoft and Amazon.

GDIT will deliver commercial cloud services to the Navy through the General Services Administration’s Schedule 70, which includes Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure. Both companies are Strategic Alliance Partners with GDIT.

The Navy contract follows the news that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Center for Clinical Standards & Quality awarded the Measure and Instrument Development and Support contract to GDIT on November 9. This multiple-award, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract will allow GDIT to bid on individual task orders related to federal health care quality management. The contract holds an estimated ceiling value of $1.6 billion and includes a base period of five years, with an additional five-year option period.

Under this IDIQ, GDIT will support CMS for another ten years as it carries out its obligation to drive improvement in the federal health care system through the development and use of quality measures and related activities. CMS will develop, implement and align measures that fill critical gaps for national quality priorities. These include measures relating to clinical quality of care, care coordination, population and community health, safety, person and caregiver-centered experience and outcomes and efficiency and cost reduction.
