G2X TAKE: Beating out two other bidders, Perspecta, a leading technology and consulting firm, that can lay claim to 14,000 engineers, analysts, investigators and architects, with offerings in mission services, digital transformation and enterprise operation, was recently awarded a 3-year Office of the Chief Information Security Officer Technical Support task with the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency. The task was competed and awarded using GSA Alliant 2.

- This award builds on their growing footprint at the Agency, to include being recently awarded a $112 million contract to provide DHS Headquarters with full-scope managed IT services for data center and cloud migration and a $75 Million contract to Manage the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Network Operations Center. Perspecta also added a Prime spot on the $325M DHS Systems Engineering and Technical Assistance (SETA) IDIQ.
