DULLES, Va., Dec. 2 (UPI) -- The Federal Bureau of Investigation has selected Raytheon for systems development and support services for key enterprise initiatives.

The Information Technology Supplies and Support Services' indefinite-delivery/ indefinite-quantity master contract vehicle has been awarded to multiple large and small businesses. It is the largest IT contract in FBI history, with a ceiling value of $30 billion for up to eight years.

Under the contract, task orders will be awarded in a number of functional areas, including supplies and related services; hardware-software and related services; operations and maintenance; and technical and development.

The contract vehicle can be used broadly by the Department of Justice, which includes the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms and the U.S. Marshals.

Raytheon said it will leverage IT Triple S to support the Justice Department's information systems, cybersecurity efforts, technology infusion and other IT programs.
