A small business with an office near North Suffolk has secured a Department of Defense contract renewal that could be worth $8.9 million over three years.
MYMIC, based in Portsmouth on University Boulevard, will continue providing “modeling, simulation and unique information-technology support” to the Joint Chiefs of Staff J8, the company announced in a news release.
The three-year contract is potentially valued at $8.9 million if both option years are fully executed, according to MYMIC.

J8, otherwise known as the Force Structure Resources and Assessment Directorate, provides “resources and force structure analysis and advice to the Chairman and the Joint Chiefs of Staff,” its website states.
According to MYMIC officials, “The J8 conducts studies and assessment to ensure the (Joint Chiefs of Staff) receives and provides the best military advice on departmental force structure and resources issues.”
Additionally, J8 provides “analytic, strategic, technical, managerial and administrative support,” according to MYMIC.
MYMIC’s vice president of technical services, Julia Brandt, will lead the team, which she says includes as subcontractors Northrop Grumman Information Systems, iMPLEMENT and Chamberlain Consulting.
MYMIC is a federally designated small business. Brandt said the contract involves about 99 employees, including 15 to 20 in Portsmouth, and others at offices in Joint and Coalition Warfighting in North Suffolk; in Crystal City; in White Plains, Md.; and at Fort Bragg, N.C.
Brandt said the company would not be hiring new employees, since this is a contract renewal, rather than an entirely new contract.
“We will continue providing support,” she said.
