Amentum Services will invest $495,000 to relocate its headquarters from Germantown, MD to Fairfax County. In 2022, the company acquired PAE Incorporated, another leading government services contractor, and will consolidate its integrated operation at Amentum’s office at 4800 Westfields Boulevard in Chantilly. Virginia competed with Maryland for the project, which will create 157 new jobs.
“The relocation of our company headquarters to Chantilly, VA, grants more convenient access not only for our local employees, customers, and partners, but also for everyone in our extended team who are doing business in the Washington, D.C. area,” said John Heller, Amentum CEO. “We look forward to strengthening our connections with and expanding our business in the Northern Virginia area and establishing our new headquarters as the ideal centralized location for our global organization.”
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority to secure the project for Virginia.
Contract Opportunities to Watch: GDIT
General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) has been awarded an $88.2 million software development contract by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA). This indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract, which has a five-year ordering period, will support the Geospatial Intelligence Search and Retrieval (GSR) program.
Hosted on a multi-domain cloud environment, the GSR program enables NGA and its mission partners to rapidly search, discover and disseminate large volumes of complex data acquired through various geospatial intelligence sources in an efficient manner. Warfighters, analysts and other decision makers use this critical information to support military operations, intelligence analysis and disaster responses.
Under this contract, GDIT will provide full software development life cycle services, including agile program management, system deployment support, security engineering and compliance, software development, IT architecture, and system engineering.
“We are proud of our long-standing support of NGA and look forward to leveraging our enterprise investments in artificial intelligence and data analytics solutions to support the agency’s geospatial missions,” said Kelly Ferrell, GDIT’s senior vice president, Intelligence and Homeland Security.
Some of the development work for the GSR program will be performed out of GDIT’s geospatial innovation center at the Cortex in St. Louis, which the company opened in December 2021. The region is a strategic hub for the geospatial community and has been home to NGA and its legacy affiliates for more than 70 years.
