RESTON, Va., April 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced that the U.S. Air Force has selected the company to provide a package of digital workplace services through which it will securely manage, maintain and monitor the Air Force's end-user desktop, laptop and mobile devices.
The $76 million award covers an engagement that will run for one year. This initial work will be followed by two one-year option periods. Unisys signed the Enterprise Information Technology as a Service (EITaaS) agreement in the first quarter of 2019.
The Air Force EITaaS objective is to consolidate multiple service desks with varied tool sets to create a single entity with complete oversight of services, increasing workforce productivity and security. Toward this end, Unisys will stand up a cloud-based ITSM solution and end-user device management solution, as well as develop and roll out a self-service portal and call management solution. Unisys will also automate security through tools to ensure end-user devices comply with security rules before they can connect to Air Force networks.
The services will cover eight Air Force locations: Buckley Air Force Base, Aurora, Colorado; Cannon Air Force Base, Clovis, New Mexico; Maxwell Air Force Base, Montgomery, Alabama; Offutt Air Force Base, Omaha, Nebraska; Hurlburt Field, Mary Esther, Florida; Pope Field, Fayetteville, North Carolina; Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Anchorage, Alaska; and Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany.
"This project will help the Air Force achieve its objectives of reducing cost, simplifying management and improving the end-user experience," said Andrew Boyd, group vice president for defense and intelligence agencies, Unisys Federal. "We look forward to bringing our innovative commercial solutions to help the Air Force make its IT support services more efficient and cost-effective through the use of commercial technology and services."
