IT integrator Alpha Omega Integration has won a $20 million contract from the Office of Information Technology Integration Testing and DevOps at U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services within the Department of Homeland Security.
The award provides for IT services to implement Test Driven Development and Behavior Driven Development testing within a continuous integration and DevSecOps framework. It also includes automation test execution via cloud-based development environments, enterprise integrated testing services and testbed lab management.
Integration testing and DevOps services are crucial to USCIS at this critical point in time, said Gautam Ijoor, president of Alpha Omega Integration.
“USCIS OIT has systematically transformed their IT enterprise from a COTS-based, stovepiped enterprise architecture to an open source, microservices based framework,” he said. “As USCIS stands ready to deploy a modern digital platform, we’re proud to have been chosen to ensure that their platform is rigorously tested and ready for use by millions of users worldwide.”
This deal is the company’s first major contract within DHS, said Chris Cole, Alpha Omega senior vice president of strategic accounts.
“USCIS has consistently led the federal sector in the implementation of commercial best practices such as agile DEVSECOPS, microservices and the application of AI/ML to automate cumbersome manual processes,” he said. “Alpha Omega’s expertise is seamlessly aligned to the technical vision of USCIS, and we are poised to provide immediate business value to the mission.”
