GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- CIBER, Inc. (NYSE : CBR ), today announced it has been awarded a new 5-year, $36 million outsourcing contract with Nashville Electric Service (NES), one of the 12 largest public electric utilities in the nation, distributing energy to nearly 357,000 customers in Middle Tennessee. CIBER has successfully delivered full IT outsourcing services to NES since 2004 and was recently awarded a new contract to continue to provide services such as application development and maintenance and infrastructure support. CIBER once again partnered with Nashville-based Zycron, Inc., thus continuing a very successful 6-year relationship in delivering IT outsourcing services to NES.

They distinguish themselves from other providers by being flexible in addressing our needs, quick to act when the situation calls for it and always seeking opportunities to drive innovation for the benefit of NES and our customers," said Vic Hatridge, Chief Information Officer for NES.
"Long-standing relationships with clients like NES are the foundation of CIBER's business, and further demonstrates our strong utilities vertical expertise. CIBER's partnership with NES not only mitigates risk for them, but allows for practical, yet innovative approaches to future challenges," said Garth Carter, CIBER's Vice President for State and Local Government.
Under the new contract, CIBER will continue to provide all onsite IT services, including applications development and maintenance, database administration, security administration, desktop support, network and server support, strategic planning and help desk services.
