Salient CRGT, through its wholly owned subsidiary Advanced Technology Systems Inc., will manage many IT issues remotely under a recently awarded contract with the Government Accountability Office.
The company recently announced it had won a $115 million prime contract to provide IT services to GAO. The deal covers program management, operations and maintenance, engineering and security services for the agency’s IT infrastructure and application systems environment.
Salient CRGT’s approach combines remote management for commodity IT services with on-site personnel supporting GAO’s mission critical software applications and systems, officials said. This is the first time GAO has embarked on a managed services transition for its IT services.
“Our approach provides GAO with increased efficiency and effectiveness in how IT services are delivered to the end users,” said Tom Ferrando, Salient CRGT CEO. “We do this by transitioning commodity IT services such as systems monitoring and service desk support to a fixed price, remote-site delivery approach that leverages shared resources to lower costs and increase efficiencies, while retaining a complimentary higher skilled workforce on-site for engineering and mission critical applications support services.”
The contract has a 12-month base period and four 12-month options.
