National Archives (NARA) Awards $10 Million Contract to Unisys For Google Cloud-Based Email and Collaboration System
Unisys’ federal arm has received a potential five-year, $10 million contract to help the National Archives and Records Administration adopt a Google cloud-based email and collaboration system for the agency’s 5,300 employees and contractors.
National Archives seeks unlimited storage, plus continued support for both records management and mobile device management through the initiative.
This firm fixed price contract will run five years, with one base year followed by four option years, and is worth approximately $10 million if all options are exercised. The competitive award builds on a previous five-year contract, awarded in 2012, under which Unisys provided similar cloud-based services.
The new contract also expands the services Unisys will provide to include unlimited storage and other new features in Google G Suite Enterprise, as well as continuing to provide support for records management and mobile device management. Unisys will continue to assist NARA in all aspects of installing the solution and integrating it with the agency’s records management system.
