Dallas-based engineering giant Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. has won a multibillion-dollar government contract, which is expected to have a multibillion-dollar budget, the company said on Tuesday.
The awards are part of the General Service Administration ASTRO contract, which provides the Ministry of Defense with new technologies and operational solutions. The contract has no set cap value throughout its potential 10-year order period, although each task order can be valued between $ 100 million and $ 1 billion and may require support from 50 to 500 employees.
The ASTRO program, a government contract vehicle specifically for the Department of Defense, is built around 10 domain areas, and Jacobs applied and was selected for seven, including data and mission operations, the space, integration of development and research and training.
“These awards on GSA’s highly anticipated ASTRO contract enable Jacobs to deliver full lifecycle digital solutions and cutting-edge technologies to ensure interoperability, resilience and assurance for the Department of Defense and joint forces, “said Bruce Crawford, mission critical Jacobs. Solutions Senior Vice President of Strategic Development and Growth and Sales.
Jacobs has a long history of contract work with the government and was awarded another contract with the Defense Intelligence Agency in March. The company is also NASA’s largest service provider, with thousands of employees designing the organization’s upcoming rockets and managing mission control systems.
In 2020, 33% of the company’s $ 13.6 billion in revenue came directly or indirectly from U.S. government agencies, according to the latest annual documents. The company landed a $ 605 million contract to design the U.S. Army’s Korea Air Operations and Intelligence Center in March of the same year.
The company is proving that it is more than just an engineering company. With more than 55,000 employees worldwide, including about 800 in the Dallas area, Jacobs has advocated in dozens of industries. Its projects range from sustainability to nuclear power to aerospace.
After acquiring national security engineering provider KeyW for around $ 815 million in 2019, Jacobs has increased its presence in the intelligence community. At the end of July, the company was working with 12 of the 18 US intelligence agencies.
“We leverage our unique blend of mission experience, cyber and intelligence capabilities, and user-informed innovation to enable decision dominance among our defense and US federal government clients,” Crawford said. .
