KGS is on the winning team for a $715 million Department of Veterans Affairs task order to consolidate and manage the VA’s data centers, the company announced Monday.
The Fairfax, Va.-based technology services firm will act as a primary subcontractor to Systems Made Simple on the VA’s T4 vehicle, supporting the department’s data center acquisition program.
Under the five-year contract, the team will consolidate five data centers that contain more than 2, 000 servers and 200 information technology applications.
The goal is to integrate information from the data centers into a single architecture, KGS said.
The team will also provide program support through cloud computing, guide-on technology, service center operation and maintenance and green initiatives.
The company has named Dave Koch senior vice president of the strategic services group, one in a series of appointments aimed at growing in the government and commercial markets.
