"Our support to JITC has helped ensure that new systems fielded to warfighters are interoperable with other DoD and coalition systems."
Chantilly, VA (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) has awarded TASC, Inc. a five-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity Test & Evaluation Mission Support Service contract valued at a potential $871 million for all seven awardees. Under the contract, TASC is eligible to compete for test-support task orders in developmental testing, operational testing, interoperability testing, standards conformance testing, and information assurance/cyber testing for the Department of Defense and select civilian agencies of the federal government.
“In this era of constrained budgets, test and evaluation takes on a new dimension. Our goal is to ensure that systems perform as advertised and deliver needed capability to the field users, whether in combat or business operations,” says Terry Wilson, vice president of TASC’s Test & Evaluation Center of Excellence. “When T&E is engaged early and continuously in the systems engineering process, it provides functional checks that allow for earlier fixes that could result in overall cost savings to programs.”
TASC’s T&E solutions span the entire testing environment and life cycle, including requirements definition, key performance parameters, critical operational issues, conformance to standards, software verification and validation, and cybersecurity testing.
“Our support to JITC has helped ensure that new systems fielded to warfighters are interoperable with other DoD and coalition systems,” says Wilson. “We are proud that through this award, our team is being recognized for its important work, and we look forward to many more years of successful collaboration with DISA.”
Currently, TASC provides services on nearly 500 simultaneous task orders for DISA’s Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) at Ft. Huachuca, AZ; MacDill AFB, FL; and Indian Head and Ft. Meade, MD.
