G2X TAKE: Peraton, a leading provider of intelligence, cyber, defense, space, homeland security and communications capabilities, was recently awarded a new two-year, $36M task to provide the Internal Revenue Service with a wide range of IT and enterprise testing support services.
Services are to include Enterprise Systems Testing (EST) Systems Acceptability Testing (SAT), Final Integration Testing (FIT), Performance/Capacity Testing, Section 508 Compliance Testing, and Security related Testing.
This task was funded by the IRS Office of the Chief Information Officer and was awarded using the GSA Alliant 2 GWAC, with no other bidders. The Agency notes “Urgency” under the Competition Information for Fair Opportunity/Limited Sources.
- Peraton, by way of their recent acquisition of the Northrop Grumman IT solutions business unit, is a longtime partner to the Department of Treasury and IRS, and they can lay claim to more than two decades of experience providing consulting services to support the performance of various types of testing of IRS tax administration and other corporate applications and systems.
- This award comes just a couple of months after Peraton completed its $7.1 billion acquisition of federal IT contractor Perspecta, and only 6 months after news of the finalization of a $3.4 Billion acquisition by Peraton of Northrop’s integrated mission support and IT solutions business unit. The combined Peraton/Northrop/Perspecta entity is now clearly positioned as a true Federal IT consulting firm powerhouse and quite possibly the largest Federal Information Technology contractor, according to Bloomberg.

- In early May Stu Shea, the Chairman, President and CEO at Peraton, offered a glimpse into the nine business sectors that will arise out of the Peraton-Perspecta-Northrop merger, which includes Tarik Reyes, former VP of Northrop’s Civil/Health and business unit, taking the reigns of Peraton’s Global Health and Financial Solutions Sector.

- Peraton was named last year to the list of NXT UP firms poised to make big waves in the Federal sector in 2020 and for years to come.
