Unisys has won a $12.6 million contract to support the development and deployment of the agency’s critical applications and systems for the General Services Administration’s Public Building Service.
The Public Building Service acquires office space for the federal government through new construction and leasing and acts as a steward for federal properties across the country, maintaining an inventory of more than 376.9 million square feet of workspace for 1.1 million federal employees.
Under the contract, Unisys will help the Public Building Service adopt a DevOps software development model under which software developers work closely with those who use and operate applications to encourage faster, more efficient and more reliable application development, the company said in a release.
Unisys will manage the integration, testing and release into production of all critical PBS applications and systems and will help the agency focus on smaller software releases that are deployed more quickly and incrementally, the company said.
