Booz Allen Bags Pentagon’s $800M Artificial Intelligence Contract

Booz Allen Hamilton has won $800 million task order to provide artificial intelligence services to the Department of Defense’s Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC).

Under the five-year contract, the company will provide AI-enabled products to the JAIC, a DoD entity dedicated to advancing the use of AI across the department.

This is a General Services Administration (GSA) Alliant 2 government-wide acquisition contract for AI products that will leverage the power of DoD data to enable a transformational shift across the DOD that will give the U.S. a definitive information advantage to prepare for future warfare operations, the Pentagon said in a release earlier today.

Specific tasks of this order will encompass a wide mix of technical services and products across the full spectrum of technical support to the JAIC Joint Warfighter National Mission Initiative.

This will include data labeling, data management, data conditioning, AI product development, and the transition of AI products into new and existing fielded programs and systems across the DoD.

The task order contract award has a base period through May 2021 with option years that run through May 2025. GSA Federal Systems Integration and Management Center, Washington, D.C., is the contracting activity.
