QinetiQ to Deliver Digital, IT Services for UK MoD in $1.5B Deal

London-based QinetiQ has received a contract to provide digital and information technology (IT) services for the UK Ministry of Defence.

The 1.2-billion-pound ($1.5 billion) project will cover four years of support for cybersecurity, system designs and applications, crypto, operations, and integrated systems across the agency.

The armed forces will leverage the solutions covered by the contract for information sharing, mission systems development, intelligence, and other core capabilities to aid British warfighters, the company wrote.

QinetiQ will also serve as a subcontractor on two additional lots of the framework agreement, which encompass enterprise and tech architecture, quality assurance, innovation, and other intelligence solutions.

“We have a proven track record under similar framework agreements of successfully partnering with an ecosystem of both large contractors with a long heritage in defence and suppliers… to address our customers’ most complex challenges at pace,” QinetiQ UK Intelligence CEO James Willis stated.

“I’m delighted with our selection as a leading provider on the [Digital and IT Professional Services] framework as it allows us to leverage our well-established expertise in defence and security across air, sea, land, cyber domains to develop exciting new solutions that will deliver vital mission capability.”

Recent QinetiQ Contracts With British Military

QinetiQ signed a separate contract last month to deliver engineering services for the UK’s upcoming Type 26 City-class and Type 31 Inspiration-class frigates.

Costing 13 million pounds ($16.5 million), the agreement ordered subject matter expertise to aid “essential engineering outputs” associated with the warship programs’ combat system acquisition and integration.

In 2023, a QinetiQ-led consortium received approximately $100 million in contracts to deliver data solutions for the British military.

Part of this initiative is the supply of mission data, electronic warfare skills, training, and IT support for the armed forces to further secure their personnel and equipment from threats.
