This blog is a follow up to our original September 2018 ManTech blog.
ManTech continues to provide many of the same services as described in the 2018 blog but has positioned itself to be more competitive in the intelligence community (IC) customer base and cyber security services. The company also realigned its organization with Matt Tait, former President of the Mission Solutions and Services (MSS) Group, now functioning as Chief Operating Officer. ManTech also restructured their operating business units from two to three with a customer-facing theme.
Leadership and Organizational Changes
ManTech shifted how they organize themselves in June 2020 and has moved away from the Mission Solutions & Services Group (MSS) and Mission, Cyber, & Intelligence Solutions Group (MCIS) structure. ManTech now aligns itself along three (3) business sectors focused on customer sets.
- Intelligence Sector – This business unit is led by Adam Rudo and specializes in cyber, data collection & analytics, training, C5ISR, supply chain management and logistics, enterprise IT and systems and software engineering. As the name suggests, this unit primarily deals with the Intelligence Community while also having dealings with the Space community, federal law enforcement, and components within the U.S. Department of Defense that require intelligence work.
- Defense Sector – Andrew Twomey leads this business unit that provides the same services as the intelligence sector but to Department of Defense customers.
- Federal Civilian – This business unit led by Bryce Pippert serves the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of State, and Department of Homeland Security with many of the same services with the inclusion of managed services, software development, IT modernization, and cloud migration.
Mergers & Acquisitions
Last time we looked at ManTech, the company had acquired InfoZen in 2017. Since the company has made a few acquisitions as displayed below.
Significant Contract Wins by Sector
ManTech has had some notable wins across its different business units, with a notable loss as well after losing the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s (NGA) Information Technology Enterprise Management Services (ITEMS) to CACI.
- In August 2019, ManTech won a $322 million ceiling, 5-year task order to support the U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence Activity (MCIA) under the U.S. Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s Multiple-Award Contract (DOD IAC MAC). ManTech develops technical recommendations on application of IT, systems integration and cyber operations, and analytics of geospatial intelligence for the U.S. Marine Corps, Expeditionary Operating Forces, and the intelligence community (IC).
- In July 2018, ManTech was awarded the $1 billion global enterprise IT services contract with the National Security Agency (NSA), it is part of the three contracts under Greenway. ManTech provides services to operate, maintain, and evolve the NSA Central Security Service’s enterprise IT environment.
- In February 2020, ManTech won a $920 million ceiling, 5-year task order to modernize the U.S. Navy’s intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) sensors on maritime reconnaissance and patrol aircraft. ManTech modernizes electronic intelligence capabilities for the Navy’s persistent surveillance, manned and unmanned marine reconnaissance and patrol aircraft (MRPA) and provide model-based systems engineering and cyber support services.
- In April 2019, the U.S. Army awarded ManTech an Other Transaction Authority (OTA) for the Department of Defense’s Persistent Cyber Training Environment (PCTE) platform. ManTech works with other awardees to develop the prototype to support the definition, development, testing and integration of capabilities into the platform. Work on the program includes multiple Cyber Innovation Challenges.
Federal Civilian Sector
- In October 2020, ManTech won their recompete for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) business intelligence support services (BISS) contract under a $273 million ceiling, 5.5-year task order. This contract supports the targeting and analysis systems program directorate in identifying cargo, conveyances, and individuals that may pose a threat to the country.
- In April 2019, The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Customs and Border Protection (CBP) awarded ManTech a $128 million ceiling task order to provide program management and engineering support to the Office of Acquisition for CBP. ManTech provides acquisition governance, strategic planning, requirements analysis and development, and more.
ManTech’s core customers have not changed since 2018 with just slight changes in obligations received from each customer. This chart however does not include their classified work which would showcase new work gained with the NSA and a shrinking NGA portfolio after losing the ITEMS contract.
FedSavvy Strategies Takeaways
ManTech has made realigned their business units to be similar to the competitors in being more customer based. As the company continues to grow through some key wins, it has struggled with some recompetes (NGA ITEMS). Here we outline some key takeaways from each sector and more.
- ManTech’s Defense business unit still focuses on what made them successful in the first place, weapons systems support and cyber security.
- The Intelligence business unit is starting to move towards more high-end analysis and engineering while continuing their classified field and IT sustainment support.
- The Federal Civilian portfolio maintains its traditional IT work.
- ManTech is likely to be making a push up the value chain via efforts such as cloud and advanced analytics work featuring senior SMEs such as Vice President of Cloud Strategy, Sandeep Shilawat who was a finalist for Cloud Industry Executive of the Year and he is also the lead for ManTech’s Data at the Tactical Edge (D@tE).
