Client Solution Architects (CSA) has been awarded a contract by the US Navy to provide enterprise network, business and fleet-support information technology (IT).
Under the $87m agreement, CSA will support the navy's programme executive-office enterprise information systems (PEO EIS), the naval enterprise network-programme office (PMW 205) and the navy enterprise business-solutions programme office (PMW 220).
Work under the contract, which is a one-year base with four optional years, includes services for acquisition programme management, project management, financial management, contract management, administration operations, public affairs and total-force management.
CSA National Capital Region Operations director Pete Tomczak said: "We are extremely proud to have the opportunity to serve PEO EIS headquarters, PMW 205 and PMW 220 by providing enterprise network, business and fleet-support information technology (IT).
"This is a strategically significant and important win for CSA."
Primary work under the contract will be carried out on-site at a PEO EIS base in Arlington and PMW 205/220 facilities at the Washington Navy Yard. Additional work will be completed at the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) in San Diego and the Naval Network Warfare Command (NNWC) in Norfolk, US.
In addition to offering IT support and technical solutions for the navy within the enterprise and business domain, PEO EIS manages the lifecycle management of a number of acquisition-category 1 IT programmes, projects and initiatives.
PEO EIS is also responsible for well-organised and appropriate planning, design, implementation and functioning of shore-based navy networks and enterprise information systems associated with combat support.
The PMW 205 programme office deals with the acquisition lifecycle for the Department of the Navy's enterprise-wide IT networks. It also unifies terrestrial networks and data-management systems, which include the Navy Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI), the Outside Continental United States (OCONUS), Navy Enterprise Network (ONE-Net) and the Next Generation Enterprise Network (NGEN).
The PMW 220 programme involves the development and deployment of integrated defence-business systems, which transform and regulate navy business operations.
