Sevatec Inc. announced Nov. 19 that it has been awarded a prime contract to support the State Department’s Bureau of International Information Programs (IIP), Office of Digital Publishing.
“This opportunity to introduce and modernize DOS IIP’s CMS platform through Agile and DevOps methodologies will help deploy applications and capabilities to DOS and its American and international customers significantly faster and with fewer operational issues,” Sevatec’s CEO Sonny Kakar said. “Delivering a more responsive and comprehensive web-publishing infrastructure will maintain IIP’s mission to support critical needs in U.S. foreign policy goals and national security threats. It is a tremendous honor for Sevatec to be selected on this effort and continue our long-standing partnership with DOS.”
The Fairfax, Va.-based Sevatec will provide a variety of IT and web development services to support the modernization and transition of IIP’s legacy Webgui embassy infrastructure to an agile and open source CMS platform with a new front-end design.
The IIP’s Office of Digital Publishing is responsible for supporting more than 450 U.S. embassy and consulate websites. Sevatec will be responsible for facilitating and implementing the user research and architecture, designing interfaces and prototypes, transitioning legacy data, and successfully deploying the new CMS embassy platform.
WashingtonExec last covered Sevatec when the company won a $25 million contract to support the Dept. of Homeland Security Data Business Intelligence Section.
