ManTech awarded U.S. Marshals Service contract.

ManTech International Corporation (Nasdaq:MANT), a Fairfax, Virginia-based IT and technical services solutions provider supporting Department of Defense and intelligence community customers, announced recently that the Department of Justice (DOJ) has selected ManTech to provide planning and deployment services for the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) JCON Implementation Phase.

ManTech will provide project planning, system component installation and USMS staff system training. The USMS, which is a component of the Department of Justice (DOJ), has approximately 6,500 employees and contractor personnel located in approximately 400 offices across the U.S. and its territories. The USMS is primarily co-located in federal courthouses, although the USMS has become increasingly involved with law enforcement task forces that operate in separate locations that have unique technology needs.

The Department of Justice JCON Program is a comprehensive IT infrastructure and support initiative which provides a reliable and robust common office automation platform upon which fourteen of DOJ's litigating, management, and law enforcement components operate their mission-critical applications. JCON also provides the infrastructure to access case management and other mission-related databases, e-Gov applications, and the Department's law enforcement, litigation, and administrative systems.

This JCON task order has an estimated value of $5.1 million covering a one year period of performance and was awarded under the Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) that was awarded to ManTech from the Department of Justice in August of 2003. The total value of the BPAs is estimated to be approximately $100 million per fiscal year for the three BPAs awarded, according to the solicitation. The DOJ anticipates the term of the BPA will be between five and ten years, depending on underlying schedule contracts and other factors.

Commenting on the award, Bradley H. Feldmann, ManTech's Senior Corporate Vice President and President of the company's Information Technology Group stated, "We are very pleased to have been selected for this task order in support of JCON and the U.S. Marshals Service. JCON is a strategic program that is critically important to the DOJ mission, and ManTech is fully committed to supporting its success."

Anthony Verna, ManTech Information Technology Group Vice President of Enterprise Solutions, added, "We are excited about starting our support of the JCON program with this critical task. We are confident that our management approach, supplemented by the strengths and expertise of our teaming partners, will enable a timely, high quality solution for USMS."
