GSA Taps Disabled Vets For IT Work

Computer Sciences Corp. will act as a subcontractor on the project led by Randy Slager's Catapult company.

The General Services Administration has awarded a $200 million IT services contract to a Bethesda, Md., company owned by military veterans who were disabled during their service.

Under the deal, Catapult Technology will help the GSA merge the Federal Technology Service and the Federal Supply Service into a single organization called the Federal Acquisition Service. Catapult will work to create a standard, enterprise-wide technology infrastructure for the new organization.

Computer Sciences Corp. will act as a subcontractor on the project under an agreement worth $66 million if all contract options are exercised.

Catapult is recognized as a service-disabled veteran-owned contractor, entitling it to certain preferences under federal purchasing rules. Randy Slager, the company's chairman and CEO, joined the U.S. Army in 1975 but was forced to leave in 1978 after suffering a serious spinal cord injury.
