The Army Test and Evaluation Command (ATEC) announced this week that it has selected STG Inc. to provide information technology support services at three U.S. locations.
Under terms of the contract, which was awarded Aug. 9, STG will operate, maintain and enhance the enterprisewide IT infrastructure that supports ATEC in carrying out its mission of testing, experimentation and evaluation. The award, a seven-year task order valued at $53 million, was issued under the Commerce Department Information Technology Solutions contract.
ATEC is responsible for ensuring equipment and systems used by the Army meet standards and safety requirements. The command plans, conducts and integrates developmental testing, independent operational testing, independent evaluations, assessments, simulations and experiments to provide information to decision-makers.
STG's four focus areas are customer support, enterprise network management, IT logistics and administrative services.
The Fairfax, Va.-based company has begun providing those services at ATEC's headquarters in Alexandria, Va.; the Army Evaluation Command's location in Aberdeen, Md.; and the Operational Test Command headquarters in West Fort Hood, Texas, according to an STG spokesperson.
