FAIRFAX, Va. – October 31, 2018 – The U.S. Army’s Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems (PEO EIS) has named ECS the prime awardee of an $87 million contract to provide ongoing operational support for the Integrated Personnel and Pay System-Army (IPPS-A) Project Management Office Support Services (PMOSS).

Awarded as a cost-plus-fixed-fee (CPFF) contract, the IPPS-A PMOSS project has a four-year period of performance. ECS will oversee the development of new system capabilities, while providing support in the areas of project management, technical management, and lifecycle management for IPPS-A’s currently deployed systems. Support and development efforts will be coordinated to ensure that operations for the current system remain stable as new capabilities are released.
