Ace Info Solutions has received a potential $37 million task order to help the U.S. Forest Service's natural resource manager directorate sustain agency information technology tools and applications.

The Dovel Technologies subsidiary said Thursday it will perform operation and maintenance work on more than 70 systems that support agency business processes under the five-year task, as part of the Department of Agriculture IT Support blanket purchase agreement.

“We will leverage our IT operations, cloud migration, and DevSecOps expertise to support NRM’s mission to sustain the health and productivity of the nation’s forest and grasslands to meet the needs of present and future generations," said Mike Cosgrave, president and chief operating officer of AceInfo.

The company will also develop crop insurance software for USDA's Farm Production and Conservation Risk Management Agency through a separate four-year, $59 million order awarded in October 2020.
