Reston, Va., tech contractor NCI is set to acquire professional services firm Computech for $56 million. The deal, announced after the markets closed Monday, continues the trend of mergers and acquisitions in the Washington services sector this year, such as Engilitys proposed acquisition of its Chantilly, Va.-based neighbor TASC. NCI provides Internet cloud, cybersecurity and logistics services primarily for defense agencies, including the Defense Information Systems Agency, the Army and the Air Force. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is its largest civilian customer Computech is a Bethesda, Md., company that performs big data analysis, software operations, and maintenance and systems modernization work for civilian government agencies .
G2X TAKE: NCI’s largest civilian customer is the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the acquisition of CompuTech certainly adds strength in big data analysis and software/systems modernization. These strengths will certainly enhance NCIs competiveness on upcoming opportunities at CMS including the upcoming IDIQ competition, CMS Enterprise Systems Development II. It also gives them broader reach across the Federal Health and civilian agency market as they expand their capabilities and customer base.
