Mac Curtis, Perspecta president and CEO, answered several questions from analysts during an earnings call Wednesday and one of the queries he responded to is about a potential five-year, $900M cyber operations services contract the company won in December from Army Cyber Command, the Washington Business Journal reported Thursday.
â€œWithout the combined â€” what we call the pyramid of the companies â€” there's no way we would have wonâ€ the single award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, he told analysts.
Perspecta started trading on the New York Stock Exchange in June 2018 following the spinoff of DXC Technologyâ€™s U.S. public sector business and subsequent merger with Vencore and KeyPoint Government Solutions.
â€œIt's all new work. We were kind of peering into the future arm in arm with the United States Army Cyber Command,â€ he said of the IDIQ contract.
The contract includes information assurance, systems and communications support services for Army Cybercom, according to WBJ.
Curtis, a 2019 Wash100 recipient, also answered questions about Perspectaâ€™s talent recruitment efforts, potential mergers and acquisitions and NASAâ€™s $3B NEST information technology support contract.
Perspecta reported $1.7B in contract awards and saw its revenue rise 49 percent to $1.08B in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 ended Dec. 31, according to the companyâ€™s quarterly financial results.
