General Dynamics to Assist Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center


General Dynamics' new commitment to veteran assistance could create defense jobs

Under a new contract obtained by the defense contractor, General Dynamics will reportedly provide management services to the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC), according to a release from the company.

The contract, which has been awarded to the General Dynamics Information Technology business unit of the company, is valued at $14.3 million over five years, the release noted.

Work under the contract is expected to include conference planning, accounting support, program administration and strategic communication, which could spur the need for General Dynamics to add defense jobs and intelligence jobs in the near future.

Zannie Smith, senior vice president of Army Solutions for the business unit of the contractor, said in a statement that the contract is designed to assist veterans in need.

"We will provide DVBIC with the program management and technical support they need to ensure service members, their dependents and veterans with traumatic brain injury receive the high-quality care they deserve," Smith explained.

Such contracts often lead to higher demand for professionals with security clearance who can be granted access to the top secret information.
