CSRA Inc. has been won the Enterprise Cloud Services for Information Technology Infrastructure Modernization contract to manage a portfolio of cloud computing services across the Veterans Affairs Department.
The 4-year contract, valued at $73 million, will improve the agency’s delivery of enhancements to veteran health benefits and service delivery programs while driving down IT sustainment costs.
“We’re leveraging our first-hand experience of transitioning our own data to the cloud, and decades of systems integration and expertise to effectively migrate VA to a cloud computing environment,” said CSRA Health and Civil Group Executive Vice President Paul Nedzbala. “Moving to the cloud makes financial sense, aligns with government goals and provides a sound, technical platform for the future.”
Under the ECS contract, CSRA will identify, integrate and manage secure cloud computing services on an ongoing basis for VA. The company will serve as the enterprise cloud services broker and manage a portfolio of cloud computing services across multiple vendors and internal VA offerings.
CSRA will ensure the integration of all aspects related to cloud service delivery quality and compliance. The company will also help VA by providing network supportability, design and an application hosting configuration to ensure alignment with modernized service delivery, which will increase service quality across VA’s enterprise.
