Northrop lands first ITES project

Earlier this month, the Army signed the first Information Technology Enterprise Solutions task order with Northrop Grumman Corp. to update computer operating systems at the U.S. Military Academy, said Steve Miller, ITES product leader, and Barbara Trujillo, an IT E-Commerce and Commercial Contracting Center officer.

The company's IT division, located in Herndon, Va., will update West Point computers to Microsoft Corp. Windows 2000 and newer operating systems and Active Directory. The six-month project is valued at $175,000, Miller said.

The U.S. Military Academy deal does not fall under ITES' performance-based parameters because that is not a requirement for all task orders. West Point's work with Northrop Grumman IT marks the first ITES task order, he said.

The Defense Logistics Agency reportedly signed an ITES task order with NCI Information Systems Inc. in early March for software maintenance support services for the U.S. Transportation Command, located with the Air Force's Air Mobility Command at Scott Air Force Base, Ill., according to the industry official whose company received an ITES equipment contract.

But Miller said in an e-mail message that there is not yet an award decision regarding the task order, which is still being evaluated.
