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.
- 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)
- 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).
