LAUREL, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aquilent, a recognized leading provider of Mobile, Web, Cloud and Portal solutions shaping the next generation of technology for the federal government, has been awarded a $100 million Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) for Cloud Services through the General Services Administration (GSA) Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies (OCSIT).
The $100 million BPA is a new single-award, five-year contract. It includes a broad range of cloud services, from cloud hosting to cloud managed services to cloud architecture, development, and security, as well as access to Aquilent’s own Olympus Powered by Aquilent® cloud management portal.
The new BPA is a GSA-wide procurement vehicle, which allows any group or sub-agency within GSA to quickly and easily procure any cloud offering within Aquilent’s and its cloud partners’ full breadth of cloud services.
As part of the GSA BPA, Aquilent will be leveraging the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. Aquilent was recently named an AWS 2015 Premier Consulting Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN). The 2015 Premier Consulting Partners are APN partners that provide superior customer service and expertise in building and migrating customer solutions on AWS. This was the third year in a row the company was recognized as a Premier Partner, and Aquilent is the only Premier Consulting Partner focused solely on serving the federal marketplace. Through the new BPA, GSA will be able to tap into Aquilent’s deep knowledge of both the AWS and Federal Cloud environments.
“This is a truly innovative solution for GSA,” said Aquilent’s Chief Technology Officer Mark Pietrasanta. “All of GSA now has easy access to nearly any kind of cloud hosting and cloud managed services necessary to achieve their mission and enhance citizen engagement. Providing better service to our citizens is the bottom-line value, and we’re thrilled to partner with GSA on enabling this through the use of advanced cloud services.”
