FAIRFAX, Va. General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) has signed a $22.4 million blanket purchase agreement (BPA) with the U.S. Navy's Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems (PEO EIS), under which CSRA LLC, a managed affiliate of GDIT, will deliver commercial cloud services for the U.S. Navy to accelerate cloud adoption.
The award includes a one-year base period with four one-year options; if exercised, the options would bring the estimated cumulative value of the contract to $96 million. GDIT will deliver commercial cloud services to the Navy through the General Services Administration’s Schedule 70, which includes Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, both of which are Strategic Alliance Partners with GDIT.
“GDIT will continue supporting PEO EIS as it executes the Navy’s ‘Cloud First’ strategy of increasing data reliability and cost-effectiveness, while maintaining a robust security profile,” said Senior Vice President Leigh Palmer, head of GDIT’s Defense Division. “Through this award, the Navy will gain access to premium commercial cloud services through GDIT’s strategic relationships with Microsoft and Amazon. Our secure, scalable, and containerized environment will enable the Navy to store its data securely, reap significant savings, and gain impressive resources to accomplish their mission.”
