Rite-Solutions Awarded NUWC Division Newport IT Services Contract
MIDDLETOWN, R.I. — Rite-Solutions recently was awarded a $49.6 million contract to support the Naval Undersea Warfare Center’s (NUWC’s) Activity Chief Information Officer (ACIO)/Information Technology (IT) division, which is responsible for strategic planning, operations, maintenance, and compliance of the center’s IT systems and infrastructure, the company said in a Nov. 19 release.
“We are thrilled that NUWC chose to renew the contract with us,” says Rocky Reeves, Rite-Solutions vice president and director of IT services.
The company will provide IT services in several areas including software engineering, client support services/help desk, Navy Marine Corps Intranet support, IT governance and application portfolio management support, and more.
“Cybersecurity touches every one of these areas,” Reeves said. Over one-half of the personnel supporting this contract must meet the Navy’s strict Cyber Information Technology/Cybersecurity Workforce requirements.
“This was a major reason Rite-Solutions won the contract. Many of our employees have degrees in cybersecurity or computer science as well as security and operating system certifications,” added Reeves.
Rite-Solutions will support NUWC headquarters in Newport, Rhode Island, as well as NUWC locations in Connecticut, Virginia, Florida, and the Bahamas.
