Unisys Claims IT Contract

Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) has won a contract to provide IT managed services for the U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization (DITCO).

The contract, awarded in the fourth quarter of 2009, is worth an estimated $187 million over its five-year term. The award enables work Unisys has performed under a previous five-year task order to continue without interruption.

Under the contract, Unisys will provide additional mainframe processing capacity and support services for the agency’s ClearPath systems that support Air Force logistics, Defense Finance and Accounting Service financial activities, and other Department of Defense applications.

“This contract represents an extension of a longstanding relationship between Unisys, DISA and DISA clients such as the Air Force, ” said Jim Geiger, managing partner, Department of Defense, Unisys Federal Systems. “Our relationship with the Air Force began in 1983, and this contract will continue to support the service’s logistics and other applications. Unisys will continue to support these critical applications to help our Defense Department clients achieve their missions.”
