GSA awards $90M USDA contract to SRA

The General Services Administration’s Federal Systems Integration and Management Center has awarded SRA International a competitive task order to provide a broad range of information technology services for the Agriculture Department's food programs.

The performance-based task order, awarded under the Millennia contract, could be worth $90.5 million over five years if the USDA exercises all options.

The task order requires SRA and its subcontracting team to develop a new IT system that will improve the USDA’s domestic and foreign food assistance programs. The new Web-based supply chain system must handle more than $2.4 billion in annual commodities purchases and improve services to customers, suppliers and business partners.

Four USDA agencies and the U.S. Agency for International Development manage the commodity distribution programs that serve more than 30 million Americans and 280 million people abroad.

The SRA team includes Accenture and six small businesses: Ecco Select, M.K. Brown Consulting, Preferred Systems Solutions, the Talmadge Group, Tsymetry and World Perspectives.
