SI Wins State Dept. Contract

SI International has been awarded a five-year blanket purchase agreement (BPA) to support the Department of State for Information Technology Professional Services. SI estimates that the value of the task orders to be performed under the contract will exceed $50 million.

Under the BPA, the Reston, Va.-based firm will design, develop, and perform systems integration and maintain the computer-based systems supporting the immigrant visa-processing and interagency data exchange among the Department of State and other federal agencies.

SI International will provide on-going technical and analytical support, software maintenance, training, and systems development for the specific suite of automated visa systems that support the Bureau of Consular Affairs' mission.

Since 1997, the company has been assisting the Dept. of State under a similar contract, Automated Data Processing (ADP).
