CGI Federal Inc. (CGI) announced Oct. 1 that it has been awarded a $50.3 million contract by the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) to provide IT support services for its ongoing data center consolidation program. Under its contract, CGI will deliver project management and IT support services to help consolidate and modernize 61 legacy Navy sites and approximately 5,614 servers.
“CGI is proud to support the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command in its effort to reduce cost through consolidation,” CGI Federal President Lt. Gen. (Ret) Dr. James Peake said. “By leveraging our existing corporate frameworks and capabilities, CGI will play a valuable role in helping the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command achieve its goal of increasing IT efficiencies.”
“We are honored to have been chosen to support this important initiative,” Timothy J. Hurlebaus, CGI Federal senior vice president and National Security and Defense Programs business unit leader, said. “With the help of CGI, the Navy will work to eliminate duplicative systems, potentially saving taxpayers billions of dollars.”
The Navy Data Center and Application Optimization (DCAO) program aims to increase efficiencies by consolidating the Navy’s many legacy data centers.
The contract is a cost-plus-fixed-fee and firm price task order. It includes a one-year base and four one-year option periods. The work will primarily be performed in San Diego, Calif., Charleston, S.C. and New Oreleans, L.A., with additional work taking place at various Navy sites.
