FAIRFAX, Va., March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- General Dynamics Information
Technology has been awarded a task order to provide information technology
(IT) support services to the Department of Defense Dependents Schools-Europe
(DoDDS-E), the overseas school system serving the education needs of military
and civilian employee dependents by providing pre-kindergarten through grade
twelve instruction to more than 30,000 students. The task order was awarded
under the Information Technology Enterprise Solutions-2 Services (ITES-2S)
contract and has a potential value of $18 million over three years if all
options are exercised. General Dynamics Information Technology is a business
unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD).

Under this contract, General Dynamics will deliver IT support services to all
DoDDS-E locations to meet the technology challenges of ever-changing
educational needs of the dependents of military and civilian employees. The
company will provide customer technology support, hardware and software
support, desktop and laptop management, server and network support, and
handheld device support.

"For more than 50 years, General Dynamics has provided the Department of
Defense with IT support operations that improve customer satisfaction and
service levels, and we are pleased to expand on that record of achievement to
include the schools of DoDDS-E," said Tom Kirchmaier, senior vice president
and general manager of General Dynamics Information Technology's Intelligence
Solutions division. "We will apply this expertise to help DoDDS-E in their
mission to provide exemplary educational programs that inspire and prepare all
students for success in a global environment."

The Department of Defense Education Activity provides a quality education for
eligible family members of personnel on official assignments. DoDEA is
responsible for the education of approximately 84,000 students in schools
located in twelve foreign countries, seven U.S. states, Guam and Puerto Rico.
