Leidos receives contract worth up to $900 million from Air Force

Leidos, a national security company, announced on Wednesday that it was awarded a contract by the U.S. Air Force to provide support for homeland defense and security technical area tasks.

Under the terms of the cost-plus-fixed-fee, firm-fixed-price, multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, Leidos will provide research, development, testing and evaluation services to the DoD community of interest. Leidos is one of 12 contractors eligible to compete for task orders under the contract, which is worth up to $900 million if all options are exercised.

The DoD's Information Analysis Centers (IACs) operate a portfolio of task order contracts for technical research and analysis. Leidos will provide its services to contribute to research and development efforts within the areas of CBRN defense, homeland defense, WMDs, critical infrastructure protection, security and other focus areas.

"We look forward to providing our domain expertise and our wide breadth of technical offerings to support the DoD IACs in advancing the solutions for homeland defense and security," David Radcliffe, the operations manager for Leidos, said.

Leidos said the contract scope aligns with the DoD's strategic guiding imperatives, which include the ability to mitigate new and emerging threats.

"With the breadth of our technical capabilities combined with the ability to manage large, complex contracts, Leidos is proud to provide continued support in the defense research and engineering communities with advanced technology for critical missions," Sam Gordy, the president of Leidos Group, said.

Leidos seeks to provide scientific and technological solutions to address worldwide challenges in engineering, health and national security.
