A new Deltek report says federal agencies spent a total of $28.3 million on cloud platforms and services from fiscal 2015 to fiscal 2017 through the National Institutes of Health’s Chief Information Officer IT Commodities and Solutions governmentwide acquisition contract vehicle.
NIH spent $18.8 million on cloud platforms over the past three fiscal years, followed by the National Archives and Records Administration at $3.6 million and the U.S. Navy at $2.7 million, Alex Rossino, a principal research analyst at Deltek, wrote in a blog entry posted Monday.
NARA’s cloud spending focused on managed services and enterprise infrastructure-as-a-service/platform-as-a-service offerings in support of website hosting efforts for the presidential library and museum.
The Agriculture Department spent approximately $42,000 on Amazon Web Services’ IaaS offerings in support of the chief financial officer and CIO offices, while USDA’s Farm Services Agency allocated $2.4 million on cloud migration development efforts.
The Navy’s spending on cloud service management work with Red River Computer Co. reached $2.6 million, Rossino wrote.
He also noted that Oracle recorded $6.5 million in total earnings from CIO-CS cloud contracts, followed by Adobe at $5.4 million and AWS at $1.5 million.
In 2015, NIH awarded 65 companies spots on the five-year, $20 billion CIO-CS contract that seeks to replace the Electronic Commodities Store III contract and provide information technology support services across the federal government.
