CGI to Move DHS Public Websites to Cloud; SVP Eric Wolking Comments

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has awarded CGI Federal (NYSE: GIB) its three-year, $1.8 million DHS-wide public cloud web content management services contract.

The contract was awarded under the General Services Administration’s $76 million infrastructure as a service BPA, which CGI was granted approval to fulfill work orders under last month.

CGI will deliver a public cloud solution for DHS public-facing websites, including DHS.gov, FEMA.gov and USCIS.gov.

In that effort, the company will provide three integrated environments with full application development and deployment life cycles.

“DHS’ move to the cloud is being watched closely as it’s one of the largest agencies to put the ‘cloud-first’ policy into practice, ” said Eric Wolking, CGI’s senior vice president. “CGI’s cloud environment contains all of the required enterprise-wide security, service delivery and hosting capabilities needed to reduce costs while delivering improved citizen services.”
