(NASDAQ: GTSI) to provide a variety of highly secure computer systems and devices under the Federal Bureau of Investigation Technology Refresh Program (TRP)
GTSI was one of three companies to win an award under TRP and the only company to provide emanation security products. The $290M IDIQ (Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity) award runs for five years. Under TRP, the FBI plans to modernize 20% of its IT hardware annually.
