Unisys will continue serving DISA mainframe systems

Five-year award extends contractor's work at DOD

Unisys Corp. will continue to provide information technology services to the Defense Department under a five-year contract worth an estimated $187 million.

The contract from the Defense Information Systems Agency’s Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization calls for Unisys to provide IT managed services for DISA’s Unisys ClearPath mainframe environment.

The award enables work Unisys has performed under a previous five-year task order to continue without interruption, the company said.

Under the contract, Unisys will provide additional mainframe processing capacity and support services for the agency’s ClearPath systems that support Air Force logistics, Defense Finance and Accounting Service financial activities, and other DOD applications.

Unisys also will upgrade DISA’s mainframe and storage environment, including installation of a virtual tape library storage solution.

The ClearPath Dorado 700 Series is designed for transaction processing environments – especially those requiring continuous availability for highly variable performance workloads – and computing tasks requiring high security, the Unisys announcement said.

Unisys, of Blue Bell, Pa., ranks No. 32 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
