State looks for more from Northrop Grumman
RICHMOND, Va. — The State of Virginia has revised its 10-year, $2.4-billion contract between the state’s computer superagency and its giant corporate partner.
Gov. Bob McDonnell says the redrawn contract significantly tightens performance standards of the troubled partnership.
The Virginia Information Technologies Agency and Northrop Grumman were the subject of thousands of state agency complaints of slow, poor service and major cost overruns.
After a scathing legislative review, the General Assembly passed legislation this year putting VITA under the governor’s direct supervision to ensure accountability.
The revision also extends the contract’s life by another three years, with a nearly 5 percent inflation allowance for Northrop Grumman.
