General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) announced last week it has been awarded a United States Army Europe (USAREUR) Enterprise Mission Information Technology Services task order by the General Services Administration. The task order, awarded in the fourth quarter of 2020, has a total estimated value of $695 million over a five-year period, inclusive of a three-month transition, one-year base period and four one-year options, the company said. 

GDIT will deliver enterprise information technology, communications and mission command support services to USAREUR headquarters, US North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) operations, and other forward deployed Department of Defense organizations and Regionally Aligned Forces in Europe. Prior to this award, GDIT worked in tandem with the United States Army in Europe through the USAREUR G6 Theater Mission Command Contract (TMCC) II task order awarded to GDIT in 2016.

The latest task order will deliver technical expertise in cybersecurity solutions to further optimize critical mission command networks and systems enabling USAREUR operations to advance its global mission, according to the company.
