Capgemini to Support Governmental IT Modernization
McLean, Virginia-based Capgemini announced on July 31 that it would be supporting the government’s information technology (IT) modernization efforts. The General Services Administration (GSA) awarded the company a contract under a new multiple-award blanket purchase agreement (BPA), the Centers of Excellence Discovery and Assessment BPA for Cloud Adoption and IT Infrastructure Optimization.
The government-wide Centers of Excellence (CoE) program is a joint effort between GSA and the White House Office of American Innovation, and is designed to accelerate IT modernization by leveraging private sector innovation and government services while centralizing best practices and expertise, the company reported. Capgemini will serve as one of the vendors on the three-year BPA contract, provding discovery and assessment services for cloud adoption and IT infrastructure optimization.
Any federal agency eligible to order from GSA Schedules has access to purchase services on the CoE BPA.
“This BPA will provide GSA and its agency partners with the much-needed flexibility and agility to rapidly access cloud adoption and IT optimization expertise,” said Doug Lane, CEO of Capgemini Government Solutions. “We look forward to leveraging our extensive experience and commercial best practices in this space to support GSA and its agency partners in achieving their modernization objectives.”
