Unisys wins $150M contract for rural development programs

Contract calls for IT assistance to Comprehensive Loan Program and other financial initiatives

Unisys Corp. will provide applications modernization and end-user support services to the Agriculture Department under a five-year contract that could be worth as much as $150 million.

Under this indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract, Unisys will support the USDA Rural Development’s programs, including the Comprehensive Loan Program and other initiatives that provide financial assistance related to the U.S. Recovery and Reinvestment Act, a Unisys announcement today said.

The contract, which represents a significant expansion of Unisys’ work with the agency, covers all aspects of application software development, maintenance and operations to support the loan program, the company said.

Unisys services will include analysis, software testing, help desk, standards compliance verification, disaster recovery support, systems programming, database management and training.

The contract also calls for assisting in the transition to a service-oriented architecture framework that will allow the agency to integrate disparate applications across multiple computing platforms.

Unisys Corp., of Blue Bell, Pa., ranks No. 38 on Washington Technology’s 2010 Top 100 list of the largest federal contractors.
