The Commonwealth of Virginia engaged Northrop Grumman to transform state government's IT infrastructure technology and provide the expertise and resources to support improved delivery of services. Oversight is provided by VITA. Believed to be the first and the largest of its kind in the nation at the time, the program has achieved most of its goals and is delivering agile and secure 21st century technologies.
Northrop Grumman provided the essential up-front private sector capital that otherwise would not have been practically available to the commonwealth. That capital provided for the construction of two new data centers and the technology to begin transformation of the infrastructure and most of the major goals have been accomplished. The result is an enterprise-wide, cohesive, agile, secure and efficient infrastructure. The contract for the 13-year, $2 billion program expires in 2019. The next steps will be to continuously enhance the IT infrastructure environment.
