Affiliated Computer Services has been selected as a subcontractor to support the US Food and Drug Administration’s Information and Computer Technologies for the 21st Century initiative, designed to modernize the agency’s information technology services.
Affiliated Computer Services’s (ACS) Federal Solutions line of business will work as a team member for Telesis Corporation, which was chosen as one of the prime contractors in the multiple award IDIQ (indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity) contract, which has a 10-year ordering period and a ceiling value of $2.5 billion.
Through the contract, the team will compete for task orders to assist the FDA in acquiring the skills, services, and IT infrastructure to accomplish its mission of creating a flexible and scalable agency-wide computing platform for the 21st century that meets the FDA business requirements and enhances the capabilities of FDA’s IT environment.

This is a key project for ACS as we expand our services in the federal market, leveraging the successes that the company has experienced on the state and local level.
