CGI Federal Inc. has won a $3.5 million contract to move the Federal Trade Commission’s public websites to the cloud
The contract was awarded under the GSA contract Infrastructure as a Service blanket purchase agreement and is one of several cloud-related contracts CGI has won in recent months.
CGI said that its teammates on this contract are Akamai and Acquia.
“We look forward to establishing a new partnership with the FTC,” said Toni Townes-Whitley, CGI’s senior vice president for civilian agency programs. “CGI’s cloud solutions, including web hosting, document management and data center consolidation, are used by a range of federal agencies from the Department of Homeland Security to Environmental Protection Agency.”
The companies will work to streamline the migration, implementation and testing and development support of the websites, including FTC.gov, and associated applications.
In June CGI won a three-year, $15 million contract with EPA to shift 80 percent of its computing environment to the cloud. The company also is one of 17 winners of a $2.5 billion General Services Administration blanket purchase agreement to sell cloud-based email services to government agencies.
