General Dynamics : 27 November, 2006  (New Product)
General Dynamics Awarded $16 Million to Support Naval Facilities Engineering Command
November 27, 2006

FAIRFAX, Va. - The U.S. Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Information Technology Center (NITC) has awarded General Dynamics Information Technology, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), a contract to support its Single Platform Maximo Application Systems, a commercial off-the-shelf software enterprise deployment initiative. The total potential value of the contract if all options are exercised is $15.8 million over three years.

General Dynamics will establish and deploy a customized and integrated Single Platform Maximo (SPM) and Navy Enterprise Transportation (NET) system throughout the NAVFAC Facility Engineering Center community world-wide. SPM and NET are based on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) enterprise software applications for managing physical assets for improved utilization, reliability and availability. General Dynamics will also provide project management; configuration and change management; operation and maintenance; interface development; configuration changes; user and technical training; and documentation development.

'Asset management is a vital component to organizational effectiveness,' said Al Whitmore, senior vice president of Navy/Air Force Systems for General Dynamics Information Technology. 'We are proud to apply our superior technical and functional expertise in COTS enterprise deployment initiatives to support NAVFAC's commitment to Navy and Marine Corps combat readiness.'

General Dynamics has supported the NITC since 1995 in the areas of application development and implementation, network engineering, Oracle(TM) database administration and help desk administration. Additionally, General Dynamics has provided customization and user training support for NITC's Maximo Center of Expertise initiative.
