The U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) has awarded BAE Systems a $126 million task order to provide mission critical sustainment and engineering services to the USMS’ Information Technology (IT) Division, the company announced on Thursday.

“We are a leading systems integrator with strong experience unifying the people, processes, and tools needed to deliver advanced solutions for our nation’s IT security challenges,” said Mark Keeler, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems' Integrated Defense Solutions business. 

BAE Systems will provide IT infrastructure engineering, deliver full lifecycle operations, and execute comprehensive portfolio management. The company will also provide service desk support and modernize IT tools and capabilities through cloud service innovations and process improvement.

The task order was awarded under the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Information Technology Acquisition and Assessment Center’s Chief Information Officer–Solutions and Partners 3 (CIO-SP3) Government-Wide Acquisition Contract. The Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract is intended to provide information technology solutions and services.

BAE Systems continues to provide a broad range of services and solutions, enabling militaries and governments to successfully carry out their respective missions. The company has supported large-scale systems engineering, integration, and sustainment services across air, land, sea, space, and cyber domains. 

“We have supported the U.S. Department of Justice for more than two decades and look forward to partnering with the U.S. Marshals in their critical mission,” added Keeler. 

BAE Systems has also secured a $300 million contract from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in Feb. 2020. Under the contract, the company will provide support to FEMA’s IT infrastructure and maintain enterprise systems. 

The company has supported the agency’s Office of the Chief Information Officer over the past two decades and will expand the scope of support through the FEMA Operations and Maintenance contract, which includes network, help desk and telecommunications services.

BAE Systems will implement agile IT approaches to help ensure the integrity of mission-critical agency systems. “FEMA leads our nation’s emergency management preparedness and response and we are proud to support them in their important mission,” Keeler stated.
