The US Navy's Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) Systems Center Atlantic (SSC Lant) has awarded a task order to CSSI, under a seaport-enhanced (SeaPort-e) multiple-award contract.

Under the deal, CSSI will continue providing information technology, system administration, lifecycle and system integration, as well as management support to multiple locations.

The services will support the research, development, test, and evaluation (RDT&E) and enterprise corporate solutions (ECS) service centres.

In addition to delivering increased efficiencies and improve reporting, CSSI will provide implementation procedures and gathering metrics support for SPAWAR to improve informed processes.

"Our clients have a critical mission to acquire, install, deliver and maintain advanced information technologies, independent of platform and across the fleet."

In addition, the company will also evaluate programmes and provide recommendations to enhance planning documentation.

Under the terms of the contract, CSSI will perform NMCI inventory management and control of navy assets by making use of the US Navy Marine Corps intranet (NMCI) tools for increased effective support of troops.

CSSI chief operating officer Ken Gordon said that the company would provide support for activities that will help troops stay one-step ahead of enemy forces.

"Our clients have a critical mission to acquire, install, deliver and maintain advanced information technologies, independent of platform and across the fleet," Gordon said.

SeaPort-e is an electronic platform that enables the US Navy to acquire support services in 22 functional areas, including engineering, and financial and programme management.

The latest $7.7m contract to CSSI, which has been supporting SPAWAR for more than 16 years, comes with a one-year base period of performance and two option years.
