The Navy's Military Sealift Command (MSC) announced Jan. 21 that it has awarded SRA International Inc. a six-year, $9 million contract in support of MSC's electronic government program.
The contract calls for SRA to provide systems development and integration services, technical studies, business process analysis, and systems security solutions.
It builds on a relationship the Fairfax, Va.-based company has had with MSC since 1997. SRA has worked on designing, implementing and maintaining an Electronic Commerce Center so that the command's internal logistics and acquisition and accounting systems interface with those of its business partners.
The Electronic Commerce Center is helping MSC collect more accurate data and reduce manual processes.
Under this latest task order, SRA will support the MSC eGovernment implementation plan by providing:
* Systems integration and other technical services for the implementation of electronic invoicing and order processing systems and design.
* Implementation of systems security solutions to ensure secure electronic transmission of sensitive government data.
SRA will perform operations, maintenance and system administration of the MSC Electronic Commerce Center and develop enhancements and upgrades to current systems.
MSC provides ocean transportation of equipment, fuel, supplies and ammunition to sustain U.S. forces worldwide.
