Sentient Digital, doing business as Entrust Government Solutions, has won a five-year indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) $49M contract from the U.S. Navy to provide information technology engineering support to the Military Sealift Command.
Entrust will help MSC develop and sustain command, control, communications and computer systems, the Department of Defense said Friday during the release of award details for March 15, 2019.
The company will also support the development of governance measures to ensure the command’s IT platforms align with its N6 division’s strategic business support plan, architecture frameworks and technical standards established by the DoD and DoN. The solutions primarily satisfy emergent cyber security mandates and technical refreshes for end of life hardware and software.
This contract was a small business set-aside, with more than 10 companies solicited via the Federal Business Opportunities website, and 10 offers received. The U.S. Navy’s Military Sealift Command in Norfolk, Virginia, is the contracting activity and work will take place through April 2024.
