Unisys will operate and manage database and middleware systems for the General Services Administration‘s Federal Acquisition Service, the company announced Wednesday.
GSA’s Federal Systems Integration and Management Center awarded the company a potential $28 million task order, consisting of a two-and-a-half month base period, four one-year options and a nine-and-a-half month option period.
“This new task order expands Unisys’ relationship with GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service into new areas of innovation,” said PV Puvvada, group vice president for civilian agencies in the federal systems unit.
Puvvada added the company could potentially build a roadmap for migrating the FAS’ database systems to a cloud infrastructure.
FAS is the organization responsible for acquiring products and services for federal agencies.
The company will first consolidate and upgrade FAS’ databases and middleware for running electronic commerce, acquisition and document management processes.
An additional option covers assessment services for migrating the FAS database and middleware systems to a cloud computing-based database, where GSA would neither deploy nor maintain its own database hardware and software.
The company also holds a 10-year contract to move 5,000 Energy Departmentlaboratory workers to a cloud-based e-mail platform.
