CGI Federal will transition the Federal Trade Commission‘s public websites to a cloud computing infrastructure under a five-year, $3.5 million contract.
The company said it won the contract through the General Services Administration‘s Infrastructure as a Service blanket purchase agreement, through which the company delivers certified cloud services to the government.
“The demand for cloud continues to grow as agencies seek to implement affordable solutions that have increased security, provide more availability, and have better performance,” said Toni Townes-Whitley, a senior vice president. “CGI's cloud solutions, including web hosting, document management and data center consolidation, are used by a range of federal agencies from the Department of Homeland Security to Environmental Protection Agency.”
She added this recent contract establishes a new partnership between CGI and the FTC.
In June, the EPA selected CGI as its external enterprise cloud provider, where the company will provide the agency hosting and virtualization services.
For the FTC, the company will put the agency’s public facing websites such as FTC.gov in a cloud environment and help carry out migration, implementation, testing and development support of the websites and associated applications.
