ManTech International Corporation (Nasdaq: MANT), a leading provider of technical and engineering services and solutions vital to the nation’s interest and security, announced that it was recently awarded five task orders valued at $6 million from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to provide enterprise IT services. The awards, from the USPTO Office of Chief Information Officer, are part of the USPTO Infrastructure, Design, Engineering, Architecture and Integration (IDEAI) contract, a multiple award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity, labor hour type contract that ManTech won in August 2008. ManTech is one of three companies awarded contracts under the IDEAI program, which has a one year base, with four option years and a total ceiling of $95 million.

Examples of services and solutions provided by ManTech to the USPTO include a user interface design assessment of five application systems to improve functionality; design suggestions for the next trademark generation systems; managing information for the USPTO enterprise data architecture systems; and quality management and service desk strategy support.

ManTech will continue to compete on the IDEAI program to provide other IT services including system design, infrastructure engineering, network engineering, system engineering, accessibility engineering and enterprise architecture services.

“The USPTO enterprise IT systems, architecture and infrastructure are critical to the overall mission of the agency,” said Bill Varner, President ManTech Mission, Cyber and Technology Solutions group. “We have supported USPTO for 14 years with proven solutions such as our Usability Design Engineering and Architecture framework. This framework is a best-of-breed approach for developing high-performing user interfaces and architectural analysis.”
