GSA Hands Down $2.5B in Cloud-Based Email BPAs

The General Services Administration has awarded a series of blanket purchase agreements to several contractors for cloud computing-based email services, the agency announced Thursday.

According to the Washington Business Journal, the agreements are potentially worth $2.5 billion total.

Awardees include:

  • Accenture (NYSE: ACN)
  • Autonomic Resources
  • CGI Federal (NYSE: GIB)
  • Computer Sciences Corp. (NYSE: CSC)
  • Dell (NASDAQ: DELL)
  • DLT Solutions
  • General Dynamics (NYSE: GD)
  • Harris Corp. (NYSE: HRS)
  • IBM Corp. (NYSE: IBM)
  • Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE: LMT)
  • SAIC Inc. (NYSE: SAI)
  • Smartronix
  • SRA International
  • Unisys (NYSE: UIS)

Contractors will compete to provide email, cloud-based office automation, electronic records management, migration services and integration services to federal, state, local and tribal agencies.

GSA estimates moving to a cloud infrastructure for email reduces those costs by up to 50 per year and saves $1 million for every 7, 500 email boxes.

Several of these companies also won positions on a potential $20 billion information technology services contract with a National Institutes of Health office (click here to see who the winners were).
