SRA International, Inc. has been awarded a task order by the U.S. Navy's Military Sealift Command
(MSC). SRA will provide systems development and integration services, technical studies, business process analysis, and systems security solutions
in support of MSC's electronic government program. The task order, awarded under the Chief Information Officer Solutions and Partners 2 Innovations (CIO- SP2i) contract, has an estimated value of $9 million over 6 years.
The mission of MSC is to provide ocean transportation of equipment, fuel, supplies and ammunition to sustain U.S. forces worldwide. Since 1997, SRA has worked with MSC to design, implement, and maintain an Electronic Commerce Center (ECC) to interface its internal logistics, acquisition, and accounting systems to those of its business trading partners. The ECC is helping MSC achieve higher levels of customer responsiveness, collect more accurate data, and reduce manual processes. Under this new task order, SRA will support the MSC eGovernment implementation plan by providing studies and analyses to reengineer existing processes in MSC's eGovernment program; systems integration and other technical services for the implementation of electronic invoicing and order processing systems; and design and implementation of systems security solutions to ensure secure electronic transmission of sensitive government data. SRA will perform operations, maintenance, and system administration of the MSC ECC and develop enhancements and upgrades to current systems.
