Global Computer Enterprises Inc. will help the Labor Department revise its core financial management functions under a $50.3 million contract.
Global Computer will replace Labor's existing information technology systems with a financial management system that complies with Financial Systems Integration Office and Federal Information Security and Privacy requirements, according to an award notice posted on the Federal Business Opportunities Web site.
Under terms of the solicitation, Labor sought to acquire Oracle Federal Financials commercial software, information technology hosting and administration, and application management and system implementation services.
Labor officials said the primary goal is to modernize the department's ability to conduct financial management functions; reduce the disparate, overlapping legacy systems and data; and gain access to reliable, relevant and timely information throughout the department.
