The Air Force awarded General Dynamics Information Technology a contract worth up to $908 million to support networks in Europe, according to a Department of Defense announcement July 14.

General Dynamics, in a July 18 release, said the indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity Europe-Wide Information Technology and Enterprise Network (EITEN) award has a five-year base period and three-year option and will support IT and network systems operated by Air Forces in Europe.

Individual task orders will focus on modernizing and supporting existing infrastructure, networks, systems, operations and maintenance, cybersecurity and managing new requirements across Europe including Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy and Turkey, to name a few.

“This contract will equip airmen across Europe with the knowledge, tools and data they need to mobilize and operate at any place and any time,” said Brian Sheridan, senior vice president for GDIT’s Defense Division. “Consolidating multiple mission-critical services under a single contract will also allow for greater speed, flexibility and accessibility of IT services needed across the region.”

GDIT scored the single award contract from the 764th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron at Ramstein Air Base, Germany.
