InfoZen has won a $208 million contract to support the Citizen and Immigration Services’ Office of Information Technology and it took on the one of the market's biggest companies to do it.
Under the contract, InfoZen will help the office provide information technology expertise, strategic vision and tactical implementation to enable the agency to be more efficient and better serve the country, the company said in a release.
Part of this information technology expertise will be helping USCIS transition from its current application development methodology to an agile environment.
InfoZen will also help the agency move from a silo-based development-deploy-support structure to an agile methodology and DevOps framework, the company said.
To win the contract, InfoZen bested Science Applications International Corp., the incumbent. SAIC protested the award to InfoZen, but later withdrew its protest.
