FALLS CHURCH, Va., June 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Department of Defense's (DoD) Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) has awarded CSRA LLC, a subsidiary of CSRA Inc. (NYSE: CSRA), a major $498 million ceiling contract to support milCloud 2.0 Phase 1. Under the contract, CSRA will provide DoD with a private cloud infrastructure and leverage existing economies of scale with the company's FedRAMP High offering ARC-P.
The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract contains a three-year base period that will run through June 8, 2020, followed by five one-year options. CSRA was one of several companies to submit proposals for the contract.
"This win is a game-changer for CSRA," said CSRA President and CEO Larry Prior. "We are now positioned as the industry leader for cloud and military IT. The milCloud 2.0 Platform will enable our DoD customers to deploy CSRA's next-generation technology and services to complete their missions more efficiently and more securely. The Department of Defense is ready to take the next step in its IT transformation. We are excited to continue this partnership with the military and provide our experts and resources to exceed their demands."
"milCloud provides an enormous opportunity for CSRA, and we are honored to expand our support for the Department of Defense under this new contract," said Executive Vice President Ken Deutsch, head of CSRA's Defense Group. "By leveraging our partnerships with the world's leading technology companies, CSRA will empower the military with our secure cloud technology while lowering costs and increasing efficiency."
The milCloud 2.0 Phase 1 contract will also open new opportunities for CSRA's Alliance Partners to expand their services to DoD. CSRA has partnered with the world's leading technology companies and developed a strong reputation within the military for quickly and affordably providing solutions. This stems from the company's "customer zero" approach, which allows it to adapt products for use in the government.
CSRA's drive toward innovation has allowed the government to utilize private sector tools through these alliance partnerships. The milCloud 2.0 Phase 1 contract will expand alliance partner offerings to include cloud, storage, service providers, database, and more.
CSRA's winning cloud solution will also provide a much lower total cost of ownership and allow DoD to consolidate their computer infrastructure through the "as a service model." This will engender greater efficiencies for on-boarding DoD consumers, reduce cost, increase the efficiency of computing platforms, and increase the overall IT security posture of the U.S. government.
The contract will also utilize talent and capabilities out of CSRA's Integrated Technology Center (ITC) in Bossier City, Louisiana. The ITC, which recently celebrated the hiring of its 600th employee, will provide an additional level of support across the cloud network.
Under the milCloud 2.0 Phase 1 contract, CSRA will:
- Provide robust and resilient infrastructure services to DoD consumers and DoD partners for a variety of highly-protected workloads;
- Improve availability, performance, and flexibility of datacenter services;
- Reduce DoD's Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for delivering infrastructure services;
- Prepare essential business processes for later, broader use in the DoD IT cloud portfolio, including: infrastructure service contracting, billing, metering, and automated provisioning;
- Provide inter-operable solutions to enable portability across hosting models and service contractors;
- Ensure that cybersecurity and privacy regulations are maintained and adhered to; and
- Promote the use of "Green IT" by reducing the overall energy and real estate footprint of DoD data centers.
