CA Technologies has bought a McLean, Va., information technology consulting firm with a long history of federal government contracts.
CA, of Islandia, did not disclose the price tag for the privately-held Base Technologies, which it said would help CA tap into an estimated $86 billion market in U.S. government information technology contracts through 2015.
Base has 23 years of experience fulfilling contracts for the departments of Defense and Homeland Security; the National Institutes of Health; the Federal Aviation Administration; and other agencies, CA said.
“The acquisition of Base Technologies further expands our role as a strategic partner and adviser to U.S. public sector customers on all computing environments and platforms,” Adam Elster, general manager, CA Services, said in a news release.
The buy adds to CA’s “ability to execute on all stages of the federal buying cycle,” the company said.
“This allows CA Technologies to better take advantage of a growing $86 billion market for software and IT services.”
