GSA hires CGI to take Data.gov, USA.gov, others to the cloud
Tuesday - 1/24/2012, 2:36pm EST
GSA hired CGI Federal under a five-year, $20.7 million deal through the infrastructure-as-a-service blanket purchase agreement to manage the sites in the company's public cloud.
This is the second major contract awarded under the IaaS contract. The Homeland Security Department also hired CGI Federal under a three-year, $1.8 million contract to provide public-cloud Web content-management services, which includes hosting on DHS.gov, FEMA.gov, USCIS.gov and others last summer.
GSA awarded 11 vendors a spot on the IaaS BPA in October 2010.
Under CGI's latest deal with GSA, it will provide a fully-managed public-cloud infrastructure and the end-to-end services required to transition, operate, maintain, enhance and secure the environment.
"Moving the GSA's public websites to the cloud is one of the key elements in the agency's plan to reduce costs, improve efficiency, and enhance operations," said Eric Wolking, CGI's senior vice president, in a statement.
