Northrop Wins Pair Of Outsourcing Deals

Tech services vendor inks agreements with Department of Homeland Security and PSC, LLC.

Outsourcer Northrop Grumman said Tuesday that it won deals to provide IT services to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and to industrial services provider PSC, LLC.

Under a task order valued at $46 million over a base year and four, one-year option periods, Northrop will provide DHS with services designed to enhance the agency's ability to communicate information across its Immigration and Customs Enforcement unit.

The task order was awarded under the federal government's Enterprise Architecture Gateway for Leading Edge Solutions (EAGLE) Information Technology services contract vehicle.

Among other things, Northrop will help design, develop, and support customs and law enforcement applications for DHS. The company will conduct the work in Fairfax, Virginia.

Northrop's contract with PSC is a three year deal to provide help desk, desktop management, and project management services, as well as desktop anti-virus and security software management, to 3,600 PSC employees.

"Northrop Grumman will partner with PSC LLC in the development of comprehensive IT solutions and robust service delivery that will allow PSC to focus on its core competency delivery of industrial and environmental services to its customers," said Ed Sturms, Northrop's VP for Commercial, State, and Local Programs, in a statement.

Northrop said it would deploy IT industry best practices, including the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) framework and an integrated knowledge management database, on behalf of PSC. The work will be carried out in Austin, Texas, and Lafayette, Colo.

Financial terms of the arrangement were not disclosed. Northrop Grumman shares traded flat Tuesday on the New York Stock Exchange, closing at $53.96
