General Dynamics Information Technology
: 25 May, 2010  (Application Story)
General Dynamics has been contracted to provide a turnkey enterprise system associated with relocation of the WHS to several new locations
General Dynamics Information Technology has been awarded a $146.2 million, three-year contract for Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Act support by the US Department of Defense's Washington Headquarters Services.

General Dynamics will deploy a turnkey enterprise information technology network infrastructure for the more than 6,400 employees in support of the Washington Headquarters Services' (WHS) move from several locations in the National Capital region to the recently acquired Mark Center facility in Alexandria.

'General Dynamics will work in concert with Washington Headquarters Services to provide a resilient, survivable, reliable, scalable, flexible and secure information technology infrastructure,' said Zannie Smith, senior vice president of General Dynamics Information Technology's Army Solutions Division. 'We will make use of our extensive network and systems installation and integration capabilities to adhere to an aggressive schedule and remain on the budget established by WHS.'

General Dynamics will provide design engineering and execution for the new location's information technology infrastructure. These services include installation and implementation of multi-level networks, systems, equipment and cabling; testing and information assurance on the installed networks; and deployment of voice, video, data and audio visual communications equipment. The company will be responsible for seamlessly moving users and their equipment to the new facility without interruption of operations.

The move of the Washington Headquarters Services was mandated by the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure Act. WHS will consolidate 11 divisions at the new Mark Centre site. The new $1.1 billion complex will span 1.7 million square feet.
