SRA International Inc. officials announced today they will build and install a system that will let the Army better manage personnel and supplies.
The General Services Administration awarded SRA a $22.5 million contract to develop and maintain an integrated Force Management System. GSA officials awarded the company in Fairfax, Va., the five-year deal under GSA's Millennia contract, according to an SRA statement.
In 2002, SRA built and installed a temporary solution for the Army called the Structure and Manpower Allocation System. The new one will combine four existing systems and will allow service users to do collaborative, secure, global development of force structure on their desktop computers, the statement said.
SRA and its industry team will perform database design, information assurance, operations and maintenance, program management, software development and systems engineering. The company's team includes CACI International Inc., Northrop Grumman Corp. and Richard S. Carson & Associates Inc.
"Beyond system migration, we want the Force Management System to reflect improved business processes and powerful automation support that will greatly reduce the workload required to develop the force structure and then quickly reconcile the doctrinal force structure to budget constraints," said Robert Burciaga, SRA vice president and business manager for Army programs, defense sector.
