Columbia-based BigBear.ai announced that the United States Army has selected the company as the sole source prime contractor for implementing the Global Force Information Management system in a nine-month contract valued at $14.8 million.
The award builds on BigBear.ai’s previous work and successful delivery of the prototype platform developed during Phase 1 of the GFIM project. Under the terms of the sole-source contract, Palantir Technologies will join the BigBear.ai team as a leading partner in implementing an enterprise-wide intelligent automation platform that provides the Army with a holistic view of its global force structure.
The system empowers senior leaders and combatant commanders to man, equip, train, ready and resource the Army more effectively. The end-state solution will transition 14 legacy systems into a single solution to provide real-time holistic data for up to 160,000 Army users, enabling risk-informed decision-making capabilities to support training and mission operations.
