General Dynamics has announced on 25 September that its Information Technology business unit has been awarded a 42-month task order to support the US Marine Corps (USMC) Systems Command Total Integrated Ground Equipment Readiness Contractor Logistics Support (TIGER CLS) contract.

Under the $94.4 million task order, General Dynamics will deliver cost-effective, innovative technology, logistics and programme management support for command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems. These systems provide USMC intelligence units with critical information and communications links to numerous stakeholders worldwide.

Tom Kirchmaier, senior vice president and general manager of General Dynamics Information Technology's Intelligence Solutions division, said: ‘C4ISR systems are a critical piece of the US Marine Corps intelligence programme and global security as a whole. We are proud to leverage our IT and logistics expertise, along with our in-depth understanding of military intelligence mission requirements, to reduce long-term costs and deliver secure, reliable communications and information technology capabilities to the widely dispersed Marine Corps organisations.’

This task order was awarded under Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) Solutions for the Information Technology Enterprise (SITE) contract, a multiple-award, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract awarded in May 2010.
