RESTON, Va., March 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) announced today it has been awarded multiple task orders by the U.S. General Services Administration's (GSA) Office of the Chief Information Officer to help GSA's Public Buildings Services (PBS) secure, operate and maintain systems used to track inventory associated with federal government workspace and to create and manage computer-aided drawings of buildings and workspace.
Valued at up to $57 million, these multi-year task orders were awarded under a blanket purchase agreement (BPA) awarded in 2017 to Unisys and six other companies. The seven companies are allowed to compete for task orders for IT services under the five-year BPA. With the award of the task orders during the first three quarters of 2018, Unisys continues to be one of the key IT vendor partners for GSA PBS. Unisys also was one of the top performers in the predecessor BPA, awarded in 2013.
The BPA has a ceiling value of $250 million over five years and covers work such as agile application development, building and energy systems program support, mobile and cloud platforms and help desk services. These services support the PBS mission as landlord for the federal civilian government, providing workspace on behalf of the U.S. federal government through new construction and leasing for 1.1 million federal employees.
"We are excited to continue supporting the GSA's Public Buildings Service's essential mission to provide workspace for federal employees who serve our country each and every day," said Melissa Carson, group vice president, civilian agencies, Unisys Federal. "We look forward to providing leading IT solution capabilities to achieve PBS's modernization goals."
