: 01 September, 2008  (Company News)
General Dynamics Information Technology, a business unit of General Dynamics, has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Army to provide information technology (IT) engineering and professional services within the 1st Theater Sustainment Command's (1st TSC) area of responsibility. The contract has a total potential value of $32.5 million over five years if all options are exercised.
Through this contract, General Dynamics will provide services to support inventory procurement, management and related supply-chain operations. The company will perform Standard Army Retail Supply System (SARSS) logistics analysis and financial reporting and support in-theater Department of Defense Activity Address Code (DoDAAC) managers and coordinators.

The 1st TSC provides acquisition and supply-chain procurement services that support troops in the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM)/Army Central Command (ARCENT) Southwest Asia Area of Responsibility -- rapidly delivering and transporting supplies to maintain continuity for regional operations.

'General Dynamics' expertise in logistical management, planning and forecasting will enable the 1st Theater Sustainment Command to give in-theater commanders improved access to real-time inventory information, data and analysis that is pivotal to military efforts,' said Zannie Smith, vice president and general manager of Army Solutions for General Dynamics Information Technology. 'General Dynamics works shoulder-to-shoulder with soldiers abroad, providing rapid and easy access to information regardless of the environment or terrain.'
