KBR Inc.

The United States Army has selected KBR Inc. as the prime contractor for its $12.1 billion information technology contract.

SGT LLC, a division of KBR's KBRwyle, will work with the Army on an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract of five years, with an additional four-year option.

The contract includes work in the cybersecurity, integration, telecommunications, supply chain management and business process engineering areas.

The company is expected to work with the Army's Computer Hardware, Enterprise Software and Solutions, or CHESS, program, which it said is expected to be the primary source of IT-related services for the Army worldwide.

CHESS is designed to simplify procurement of off the shelf IT hardware, software and services. The program makes IT services more easily available, as well providing vendor competition and contract services with the goal of negotiating better deals to serve the Army's needs.
