Unisys to provide IT support services to USJFCOM

To assist US Joint Forces Command to implement the DoD joint net-centric data strategy

By CBR Staff Writer

The US Defense Information Systems Agency’s Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization has awarded Unisys a firm fixed price task order to provide IT support services to the US Joint Forces Command in Norfolk, Virginia.

Under the three-year task order, awarded under the US Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Encore II contract, Unisys will assist the command in implementing the Department of Defense (DoD) joint net-centric data strategy for making military data more visible, accessible, understandable, trustworthy and interoperable for all of the military services, combatant commands and major DoD agencies.

The award is a recompete of work Unisys has performed under successive task orders since April 2005.

Under the new agreement, Unisys will continue to assist US Joint Forces Command (USJFCOM) in implementing the DoD net-centric data strategy with a particular focus on enhancing the capabilities for command and control (C2) of joint military forces. Unisys will accomplish this through such activities as developing common C2 data exchange standards, implementing a service-oriented architecture based on web services, building out C2 data models, and analyzing business/mission activities.

Jim Geiger, managing partner for DoD at Unisys Federal Systems, said: Unisys is very pleased to be able to continue supporting the joint forces command in this extremely important, pioneering work that will promote information sharing among various communities within the DoD. This activity is an essential component of the DoD strategy to provide effective command and control data to support military personnel in the field.
