ManTech to support SMLIS
ManTech International has been awarded a bridge contract modification by the US Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) to support the US Navy Ship Maintenance and Logistics Information Systems (SMLIS) programme, the company announced on 5 August.
Under this cost-plus-fixed-fee contract modification, ManTech International will provide systems operation, support and sustainment services for the programme. The modification also contains options to extend services through to July 2017, with a potential $47 million value.
The SMLIS programme supports the navy's shore-based maintenance and logistics information technology systems, which support various processes at NAVSEA headquarters, ship repair facilities, regional maintenance facilities and naval shipyards.
Daniel J Keefe, president and CEO, ManTech's Mission Solutions and Services Group, said: 'Providing enterprise support to SMLIS programme is a privilege for ManTech, and continuing this partnership is critical to navy's ship modernisation programmes.'
