The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded General Dynamics Information Technology an $89.5 million contract under its High-End Scientific Computing (HESC) II Support Services task order.
The task order has a one-year basis period, and six option years.
The HESC program provides EPA researchers with atmospheric modeling, computational fluid dynamics, bioinformatics computational chemistry and statistical modeling for much of the environmental research that is conducted at the agency.
“As the largest HPC systems integrator for the Federal government, this task order continues the supercomputing expertise provided by GDIT and its HPC Center of Excellence supporting programs across civilian and health agencies and the Department of Defense,” GDIT said.
GDIT’s Vice President Kevin Connell stated that “We are proud of our continuous support to the EPA since 1978, and this new task order provides our scientific computing experts and the company’s HPC Center of Excellence the opportunity to meaningfully advance EPA’s critical mission.”
