Signal works on Army knowledge

Signal Corp. began work this month on implementing systems to help the Army meet the five strategic goals of the Army Knowledge Management plan, which include changing its culture to become a knowledge-based organization and adopting an enterprise "infostructure" plan.

The Army's Office of the Director of Information Systems for Command, Control, Communications and Computers (ODISC4) announced this week that it awarded Signal a $25 million task order for knowledge management and technical support.

The task order was awarded Dec. 27, 2001, and work began on Jan. 2, 2002, said Roger Mody, president and chief executive officer of the Fairfax, Va.-based systems integrator.

The seven-year deal was awarded through the General Services Administration's Millennia Lite Functional Area 4 contract for legacy systems migration and new enterprise systems development. This task order is the third awarded to Signal through Millennia Lite, Mody said.

In addition to assisting with the implementation of the knowledge management initiative at ODISC4, Signal also will design, implement and maintain numerous applications, including the office's Web site, document and workflow management, and public-key infrastructure.
