The Defense Information Systems Agency, or DISA, and the Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization have awarded Unisys a task order to provide services supporting and maintaining a myriad of mission-critical Department of Defense applications at DISA’s Systems Management Center in Ogden, Utah.
The award, valued at approximately $15 million if all options are exercised, is a recompete of a contract for services Unisys has provided since 1992. The new agreement will run one base year followed by four one-year options, exercisable at the discretion of the government.
The Ogden Systems Management Center (SMC) provides centralized information system processing services to a diverse and geographically dispersed community of end users from across the Department of Defense. Unisys will support the SMC by providing services including systems management, system software administration, information assurance security, data replication support, database administration, service desk support and Unix system administration, said Unisys.
The services support mission-critical applications for logistics, maintenance, finance, planning and support, and other functions for Defense organizations such as the Defense Logistics Agency, the Defense Finance and Accounting Service and the Air Force.
This task order was awarded to Unisys under DISA’s $12.225 billion ENCORE II multiple award indefinite delivery indefinite quantity contract. Unisys was one of the 26 vendors selected by DISA earlier this year to compete for task orders under the ENCORE II program, added Unisys.
Jim Geiger, managing partner of Department of Defense for federal systems at Unisys, said: These support services will assist DISA in providing the secure and reliable IT services essential to the mission of the Department of Defense. Thanks to the many years of experience we have supporting the Ogden SMC, we have a unique understanding of the center’s needs and goals and we look forward to continuing this relationship.
