The company snagged a contract with the U.S. Census Bureau worth $102 million to provide secure IT infrastructure support services for its workforce that spans thousands of remote workers, 248 local offices, six regional centers, two paper data capture sites and five island area offices. The award was given in the third quarter of 2018, has a 5-month base period and three 1-year option periods.
Specifically, Unisys will provide IT equipment, logistics, maintenance services and digital services for remote workers in preparation for the 2020 census. These services include data capture and scanning equipment for processing census reply forms, troubleshooting, replacement, repair, installation, configuration, patching and decommissioning of IT equipment.
Unisys will also provide secure cloud services for the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, an independent bureau within the Treasury Department. This new blanket purchasing agreement has a value of $69 million and was awarded in the fourth quarter of 2018. It has a 1-year base and four 1-year option periods.
