WASHINGTON, Nov. 15 (UPI) -- The Harris Corp. will provide IT infrastructure for the newly relocated U.S. Army Materiel Command Headquarters at Redstone Arsenal in Alabama.

The contract awarded by the National Capital Region Contracting Center is worth $77 million. It features one base year and two one-year option periods.

"This award further extends our company's growing reputation in the marketplace for delivering complex, mission-critical systems integration solutions," said Mike Deloney, vice president and general manager of Department of Defense Programs, Harris IT Services. "We are proud to continue our support to the Army operational commands through this headquarters relocation."

This is the second major military headquarters relocation contract for Harris, which is completing work on a similar relocation installation for the U.S. Southern Command Headquarters in Miami.

Under the AMC contract, Harris will engineer, furnish, install and test the command, control, communications and computer IT infrastructure, which includes audio-visual and video teleconferencing equipment.

This contract was awarded under the nine-year, $20 billion Information Technology Enterprise Solutions- 2 Services contract vehicle, which is the preferred method of contracting for services and supplies for the Army.

The Harris team for the project includes subcontractors General Dynamics IT, Audio Visual Systems Inc., Advanced Systems Development Inc., By Light Professional IT Services, Microtech, IBM and nLogic.
