Perot Systems Corp. won a five-year, $7 million contract from the General Services Administration Public Building Service to deliver system maintenance and support for users of the agency's Computer-Aided Drawing Library Project.
Under the new contract, Perot Systems of Plano, Texas, will continue running various applications that assist GSA in managing architectural and engineering drawings along with a geospatial and environmental data. It also will continue providing hardware and software maintenance and data migration services.
The company has been supplying maintenance, systems upgrades and operations support for the project since October 2004. In that time, the company reduced the Public Building Service's server use from 32 to six.
Perot Systems, which has more than 18,000 employees and had annual revenue of $2 billion in 2005, ranks No. 44
on Washington Technology's 2006 Top 100
list of the largest government IT contractors.
The company's government services subsidiary offers consulting, technology-based solutions and program management support to the federal government. It accounted for 14 percent of the company's total revenue last year.
