Buchanan & Edwards Inc. has been awarded a 5-year, $42.3 million contract with the Government Accountability Office’s Information Systems and Technology Service’s Office to modernize IT operations, maintenance and development services.
“We desire to be the IT provider of choice for the GAO community and are honored that GAO has entrusted BE to support this major initiative,” said Eric Olson, CEO of Buchanan & Edwards.
Under the contract, Buchanan & Edwards will lead the modernization and development of the New Blue System Operations and Maintenance program. The program allows staff to collaborate on developing and publishing structured content that can be published to multiple distribution channels without manual rework.
“Our ability to consistently deliver quality IT support services while concurrently developing, enhancing, and modernizing technical solutions makes us a great fit to support this mission,” Olson added.
Mohamed Elansary, vice president of business development and strategic initiatives at Buchanan & Edwards, said this is a great opportunity for the company to support GAO’s product development, publishing and distribution processes while impacting the agency’s mission to provide Congress with timely, fact-based, nonpartisan information.
“Leveraging our cloud and infrastructure practice, BE will migrate GAO’s New Blue System to an AWS cloud-based environment helping to improve government, optimize system efficiency, and save taxpayers money,” Elansary said.
