Reston, Virginia-based information technology contractor Octo has merged with software development firm Sevatec in a deal of an undisclosed sum to create a combined entity that will focus on helping federal government customers to address IT modernization goals. Baird and Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman served as Sevatec's financial and legal advisers on the transaction, respectively, while Sheppard Mullin acted as Octo's legal adviser.
Sevatec has secured a $22.5 million task order under the Unrestricted GSA Alliant 2 Governmentwide Acquisition Contract (GWAC). The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) awarded the task order to develop a modern authentication and identity proofing platform. Sevatec has partnered with Excella and Capital Technology Group (CTG) to assist in development.
