Subcontract Under Navy's MSC Ashore Program

Wednesday, November 15, 2006
Binary Group, Inc. was awarded a subcontract under the Navy's Military Sealift Command's (MSC) Ashore Program by the prime contractor, Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC). This indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity subcontract establishes a six-year period of performance and enables SAIC to purchase services through the execution of task orders. The MSC Ashore Program provides overall Information Technology (IT) Engineering and Ashore Operation Support Services to the Command, Control, Communications and Computer Systems Directorate (N6 - C4S) who is responsible for maintaining the worldwide communications and information system requirements of the MSC. As part of SAIC's team, Binary Architects will guide the Technical Architecture and capture the major technologies and the related approved standards needed to support MSC's operational environment. They will provide IT project teams within MSC with standards reference materials and standards specification guidelines and will work with them to develop and apply technological standards. The Technical Architecture is being developed in part to resolve issues associated with standing up new applications, to support the adaptations of COTS and GOTS packages, and to improve the integration and adaptability of new IT systems. At maturity, the MSC Technical Architecture will provide a central and cohesive framework that guides the purchase, deployment and management of IT across MSC and will ultimately assist in making sound, OMB- compliant, IT investment decisions.
