The U.S. Air Force has awarded the Common Computing Environment (Cloud One) contract to Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC). SAIC will migrate approximately 800 Air Force and U.S. Army mission applications into the cloud.
“The Air Force and Army need speed, scale, and security in migrating their mission apps to the cloud,” said Michael LaRouche, executive vice president and general manager of SAIC’s National Security Customer Group. “We leveraged the best of our own proprietary solutions and partners’ technologies to develop a smart migration approach to address the military’s critical needs. We have invested heavily in our IT modernization capabilities, and the opportunity to assist the DOD reinforces the value we deliver to our customers.”
The contract consists of firm fixed price, labor hour, and cost reimbursement elements with a nine-month period of performance and four one-year options. Though awarded by the Air Force, the contract will also serve Army applications, as part of the Army’s cloud strategic framework. SAIC’s solution leverages proven success and capabilities in cloud, IT modernization, software, cyber, and data analytics.
“We help our clients to realize the full potential of the cloud for their applications,” said Josh Jackson, executive vice president and general manager of SAIC’s Solutions & Technology Group. “We proposed a forward-leaning and comprehensive model for what they want to achieve, remaining focused on the mission while accelerating and simplifying adoption of DOD’s cloud computing options and the associated benefits. Our customer-vetted approach provides a fast, affordable, and highly secure migration strategy that protects the current state while accelerating the use of new and emerging technologies.”
