The General Services Administration and the Department of Housing and Urban Development have awarded contracts to Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) and Systems Engineering Solutions to support the second phase of HUD’s information technology modernization through the Centers of Excellence program.
SES will support HUD’s cloud adoption efforts and Booz Allen will help the department establish an agency-wide capability in customer experience under the contracts, GSA said Monday.
“HUD continues transforming its business processes by enhancing our digital ecosystem with cloud adoption,” said David Chow, chief information officer of HUD. “We are looking to deploy a number of proofs of concept leveraging artificial intelligence, Forms as a Service, and records management.”
GSA said the awards are the first of the contract announcements under the CoE program’s Phase II.
HUD and GSA released requests for quotes in September as part of the second phase of the department’s CoE IT modernization effort. GSA selected HUD in 2018 as the second agency for the CoE initiative.
