McLean, Va. – The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) invests in breakthrough technologies that support the Department of Defense’s (DoD) mission to protect our national security. Comprised of approximately 220 government employees overseeing 250 research and development programs, DARPA addresses problems spanning from deep science to systems engineering. To provide the DoD and our military with the most cutting edge capabilities, DARPA has awarded Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) and six other prime contractors in August 2018 an IDIQ contract worth up to $850M for technical and analytical support. The purpose of this contract is to deliver high level Science and Engineering Technical Assistance (SETA) support across DARPA offices, involving multiple disciplines and domains. Booz Allen will provide over 110 on-site SETA staff in addition to a variety of subject matter experts in air, space, ground, maritime, microsystems, biology, chemistry and physics.
“We are honored to continue our long-standing work for DARPA. Booz Allen was selected based on our history of providing cutting edge support to DARPA's mission and our demonstrated access to technical expertise. We will provide the unique key skills needed for each of DARPA’s technical and supporting offices,” said Angela Wallace, vice president at Booz Allen. “Maintaining our national security amongst increasingly advanced threats is of the utmost importance. DARPA is tasked with developing hundreds of new concepts every year, with a wide range of disciplines or domains involved. Booz Allen will provide technical subject matter experts, including multiple Ph.D.s, as well as programmatic and financial DARPA domain experts, to support the program managers and office leadership, to provide continuity to aid DARPA in accomplishing this objective.”
