FAIRFAX, Va. General Dynamics Information Technology, a business unit of General Dynamics, has been awarded a contract by the NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCI Agency) to deliver a significant upgrade to NATO's technical infrastructure in decades. The single-award contract has a potential value of $140 million over five years.

Under the terms of the contract, General Dynamics will partner with the NCI Agency to implement a modern, private cloud-based infrastructure that will improve the operational efficiency and effectiveness of NATO’s IT enterprise. The General Dynamics work will include updating of outdated IT infrastructure; implementing NATO-wide continuity and disaster-recovery capabilities; clarifying service levels in the cloud-computing arena; implementing additional information-security measures; boosting operational agility by enabling real-time reallocation of resources; and reducing costs through the streamlining of management and operations.
