SRA International, Inc., a leading provider of technology and strategic consulting services and solutions to government organizations, today announced that the U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) has awarded SRA its Defense Personal Property System (DPS) contract, which carries a total value of $17.6 million if all options are exercised.

Under the contract award, SRA will manage two major DPS software releases, in addition to providing training and learning management, engineering services, configuration management and operations maintenance support. SRA also will provide tier-three help desk and cyber security support.

The DPS is a web-based system that supports military members and U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) civilians and their families moving from one physical location to another. The system allows the military member or DOD civilian to schedule their move, manage and track their personal and household goods, as well as work directly with transportation service providers that are part of the process. The system also provides analytics to USTRANSCOM and its U.S. Army component, Surface Deployment and Distribution Command.

SRA was involved in the creation and development of this system for our service members and their families, so we understand its importance to them. said Defense Logistics Vice President Jim Curtis. We are proud that we have been selected to enhance the system over the next 18 months; our employees have an abiding sense of commitment to this work.
