The U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) has awarded a potential five-year, $152 million contract to Unisys to support its Joint Service Provider (JSP) program for the secure management and maintenance of the Department of Defense IT infrastructure, Unisys announced on Thursday

Unisys will leverage solutions including CloudForte and infrastructure services to help ensure the availability of mission-critical IT services for Defense Department clients and promote the security, standardization and consolidation of the JSP IT infrastructure.

"With this award, Unisys will help the Department of Defense adopt a secure and standardized IT environment at a lower cost," said Andrew Boyd, group vice president for defense and intelligence agencies, Unisys Federal. "As a leader in offering innovative and industry-leading cloud and IT support services to the U.S. federal government, we look forward to helping DISA achieve its goals for enhancing its support of Defense Department decision-makers and warfighters."

The objective of JSP is to provide a unified approach to managing server, storage and application resources – including virtualized applications. The program seeks to avoid multiple standards for processes and support procedures by moving applications to JSP IT environments that offer services and infrastructure to customers via Platform-, Infrastructure- and Desktop-as-a-Service models.
