RESTON, Va., Nov. 18, 2021 NCI Information Systems, Inc., a leading provider of digital transformation solutions and services to U.S. government agencies, announced today it won a two-year recompete for a $14 million prime contract from the Federal Communications Commission.

The contract win leverages the government contracting leader’s more than 25-year history of outstanding past performance with the FCC delivering IT support and technology solutions.
