27th April 2010 - 18:55 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Harris Corporation , an international communications and information technology company, has been awarded a $35 million contract to deliver network operations support, that will enable the Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) to distribute affordable commissary goods to US military personnel worldwide. The contract, which includes a five-month base with four one-year options, is a follow-on to the company's successful completion of a six-year contract with the agency.

Nearly 12 million customers in military communities around the world rely on local commissaries for groceries and other supplies. Harris network infrastructure support, management and maintenance provide the backbone of DeCA's commissary system.

The company optimizes store and support operations through its security monitoring, on-site assistance and technology support. Harris also supports the retail point-of-sale system and services, debit and credit card transaction authorizations, e-mail, payroll, personnel management -- as well as product ordering, shipping, receiving, invoicing and billing - by providing reliable, and secure telecommunications.

"The integrity and reliability of the infrastructure are paramount to fulfill DeCA's objectives of providing easy-to-use, accessible services worldwide," said John Heller, vice president and general manager, Department of Defense Programs, Harris IT Services. "Our secure network prevents unauthorized disclosure of data and access to sensitive business, personnel and customer information."
