Geocent, a Metairie information technology and engineering firm, has been awarded a $22.1 million contract to work with the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific in San Diego on command and control technologies, capabilities and Internet operations.
The contract has a two-year option period that could raise its value to $36.4 million.
Geocent’s contract was among six awarded.
“This well-deserved contract gives Geocent the opportunity it needs to grow and develop its footprint in southeast Louisiana,” U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., said in an announcement.
She chairs the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship.
“We appreciate Sen. Landrieu’s work on the Small Business Committee to create opportunities for small contractors,” Geocent CEO Bobby Savoie said.
Separately, Geocent recently was awarded an opportunity to provide geospatial technical support services for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Geocent and three other small businesses were selected to provide services under a $98 million blanket purchase agreement that covers a one-year base period and up to four option years.
Geocent is headquartered in Metairie and has offices in New Orleans; Baton Rouge; Charleston, S.C.; Huntsville, Ala.; Stennis Space Center, Miss.; and Tulsa, Okla.
