Unisys wins $139M IRS private cloud contract

Unisys Corp. has won a $139 million contract from the Internal Revenue Services for private cloud-based storage.

As part of the deal, Unisys will buy storage assets now owned and managed by the IRS. The company will manage 7.5 petabytes of storage currently spread across multiple IRS data centers and facilities, the company said in an announcement.

The contract was awarded under the General Services Administration’s Alliant contract. It has a one-year base and nine one-year options. Each year’s pricing is based on how much storage the IRS estimates it will need. The agency will only pay for the storage capacity it needs.

“The IRS Enterprise Storage Acquisition program demonstrates how global best practices and innovative approaches can bring significant cost savings to the US federal government and to taxpayers,” says Ted Davies, president of Unisys Federal Systems. “As agencies look to achieve more within tightened budget constraints, we expect to see more agencies following the lead of the IRS.”
