Sevatec has secured a position on potential five-year, $265M blanket purchase agreement to support the Department of Homeland Security's cloud migration efforts as DHS aims to increase the operational efficiency of its business components.

The Fairfax, Va.-based company said Tuesday it aims to help the DHS Office of the Chief Information Officer transition applications from unsupported platforms to software, infrastructure and platform-as-a-service environments through the ADaPTS BPA.

Work will also include the deployment of data and business intelligence, artificial intelligence, automation, machine learning and Agile tools designed to simplify OCIO app delivery functions.

“We’re thrilled to be a part of DHS’ comprehensive digital transformation, and for the opportunity to play a significant role in improving the department’s business effectiveness while strengthening security around DHS data and infrastructure," said Sonny Kakar, founder and CEO of Sevatec.

Sevatec is one of the four companies holding positions on the multiple-award agreement.
