General Dynamics Information Technology has won a contract worth up to $908 million to bolster U.S. Air Forces in Europe-run IT and network systems, the company announced today.

The indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity award for the Europe-Wide Information Technology Enterprise Network (EITEN) includes IT and cyber readiness support services, operations and maintenance activities tied to legacy communications equipment and more, according to a recent DOD request for information outlining the scope of the effort.

“This IDIQ will allow for greater speed, flexibility, and accessibility in providing Enterprise IT and Network support services, and enterprise solutions to meet [U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa] mission objectives to address current and evolving threats to our nation’s defense systems and to enhance existing and future capabilities,” the March RFI states.

Awarded by the 764th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron at Ramstein Air Base, Germany, the contract carries a five-year base period and a three-year option, per GDIT’s press release.

“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,” Brian Sheridan, senior vice president for GDIT’s Defense Division, said in the release. “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.”

Work tied to the contract is set to occur across sites in Germany, the U.K., Italy, Turkey and throughout Europe, according to GDIT.
