Octo Consulting Group has won a $15 million contract to develop, maintain and sustain key U.S. Air Force financial systems, including migrating to the cloud the system used by every active duty Air Force member to process military leave requests.
Under the multiyear contract, Octo will be responsible for sustaining modernizing the Air Force Financial Systems Operations software sysems, which include eFinance, FMSuite and the leave-request system, LeaveWeb.
Octo will help optimize the eFinance and FMSuite systems as part of an effort to automate the two systems.
“Octo is excited to support AFFSO’s development and sustainment of the LeaveWeb, eFinance, and FM Suite applications,” said Jim Vant, executive vice president of the company’s defense and intelligence unit. “We are pleased that the Air Force selected our team to lead this mix of sustainment and modernization work. This represents an exciting foray into the Air Force IT development space as well as into the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base community.”
A core component of the planned effort is the migration of the LeaveWeb application to the AWS cloud. This migration will increase the resilience, scalability and availability of the LeaveWeb application, the company said.
“We look forward to supporting AFFSO and the Air Force more broadly, and helping bring new energy and process expertise to modernize these critical systems,” Octo CEO Mehul Sanghani said. “Octo truly appreciates the opportunity to support these critical administrative systems that enable the Air Force’s execution of global operations.”
