Information technology company Data Systems Analysts has received a pair of task orders from the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Defense (JPEO-CBRND).
The Joint Enterprise-Omnibus Program, Engineering, and Technical Support Business and Analytical, Engineering and Technical, Information Technology task orders require DSA to offer technical support such as business and data analysis, training, cybersecurity strategy and systems engineering, the company said Wednesday.
“With this award, DSA continues to be a trusted contractor supporting the entire Joint Force,” said DSA Chairman and CEO Fran Pierce, calling the work necessitated by the task orders a “critical mission.”
DSA’s responsibilities under the task orders also include science and technology analysis, specialized software support and providing IT proficiency. These services are intended to aid the JPEO-CBRND in its mission to help warfighters navigate chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear environments.
The U.S. Special Forces entrusts the JPEO-CBRND with the management and administration of CBRN sensors and related technologies, including protective equipment, medical antidotes and defense-use biotechnologies.
As a result of the task orders, DSA will be assisting with these duties, in work taking place throughout the U.S.
DSA is currently performing similar services, such as cybersecurity and infrastructure development and sustainment, for the Defense Intelligence Agency under a 10-year, $12.6 billion contract.
In November 2021, DSA President and CFO John Foley spoke with ExecutiveBiz about landing the DIA contract and other subjects.
On the company’s place in the current tech landscape, Foley shared, “Our organization has traditionally operated within enterprise systems. Within the shifting priorities in cloud, ZTA, and accelerating data, DSA sees pockets of where our traditional offerings have application within the DoD and other agencies.”
The company’s potential to play a role with the other agencies Foley referenced is borne out by the two JPEO-CBRND task orders.
