FAIRFAX, Va. - The U.S. Army has awarded Signal Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of General Dynamics Network Systems, the Total Engineering and Integration Services (TEIS) contract, to provide information technology (IT) engineering and technical support. The indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) multiple award contract has a performance period of one base year and four option years with a ceiling value of approximately $800 million. General Dynamics Network Systems is a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD).
