FAIRFAX, Va., Aug. 5 (UPI) -- The U.S. Coast Guard has given General Dynamics Information Technology a blanket purchase agreement for information technology support services.

The service agreement, for the U.S. Coast Guard Force Readiness Command, is for five years and carries a ceiling value of $11 million.

Under the contract, General Dynamics will provide FORCECOM with IT and simulator support services for non-standard workstations and systems. Non-standard workstations are customized and stand-alone from the overall enterprise and support command, control, communications, computers and intelligence systems, navigational, telecommunications and ship board sensors.

Work will be performed in Petaluma, Calif.; Elizabeth City, N.C.; Yorktown, Va.; Charleston, S.C.; and Washington.

"General Dynamics will provide the Force Readiness Command with exceptional support in managing and sustaining its information technology systems and networks, which are vital to meeting readiness requirements for mission success of protecting the safety and security of U.S. citizens," said Marcus Collier, senior vice president of General Dynamics Information Technology's Civilian and Homeland Security division.

FORCECOM is the Coast Guard's first command solely responsible for preparing forces to perform and execute missions.
