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.
