Perspecta is the County of San Diego’s outsourcing contractor for Information Technology (IT) and Telecommunications. The County first outsourced their IT and telecommunications in 1999 to the Pennant Alliance, which was led by Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC). In 2005, the County initiated a competitive bid process to determine whether they should change contractors at the end of the seven-year contract (ending in December 2006). At the end of that process, a new contract was awarded to Northrop Grumman Information Technology (NGIT). In April of 2011 with the mutual agreement of the County of San Diego, Perspecta and NG, a Contract Assignment Agreement was signed which transferred the County’s outsourcing Agreement from NGIT to Perspecta. In November 2016 the County entered into a new agreement with Perspecta.
Perspecta provides IT services to the County through five distinct frameworks; Help Desk, Applications, Desktop, Network and Data Center. Perspecta has close to 300 people supporting the County’s IT and Telecommunications services. In addition to the team here in San Diego, Perspecta also manages two remote Data Centers and one Help Desk facility which provide support to the County’s operation.
