Computer Sciences Corporation has been chosen by the General Services Administration as one of 17 companies to receive a $2.5 billion blanket purchase agreement for providing email as a service, according to a company statement.
Under the contract, CSC will provide solutions based on Microsoft Exchange and another one based on Google.
“CSC has successfully delivered email as a service to government organizations at the federal and state level, and that work has laid the foundation for providing GSA with a solution that will reduce cost, meet the President’s cloud mandate and embrace cloud for enterprise applications,” said Mike Gaffney, vice president and general manager of CSC’s North American public sector civil group.
“Government employees, much like those in the commercial space, want to use personal devices for their job and get work done remotely, and cloud services are the key to making this a possibility. CSC’s experience delivering cloud services to both government and commercial clients will aid GSA as the agency transitions to deliver as a service enterprise applications across the federal government,” he added.
CSC will also provide the GSA with “office automation, electronic records management, migration and integration services, with security requirements at the FISMA moderate-impact level.”
