Hagerstown firm lands Pentagon job

April 27, 2003

EDS Corp. of Hagerstown has landed a $258 million, two-year contract to upgrade the Pentagon's information technology infrastructure under the Command Communications Survivability Program, the company announced.

The company could be paid more if it earns incentive payments, EDS spokesman Kevin Clarke said.

The upgrade is to ensure the survivability and security of the Pentagon information technology infrastructure. It covers networks, data storage and voice and messaging systems at the Pentagon and selected facilities.

After the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the Pentagon, the Defense Department launched an effort to ensure survivability of the Pentagon's voice and data network communications and mainframe processing capability.

EDS' contract team members include NetCONN Solutions, also of Hagerstown, for data center engineering.
