CSC Wins GSA Email as a Service Blanket Purchase Agreements
FALLS CHURCH, Va. --(Business Wire)--
CSC (News - Alert) (NYSE: CSC) announced today that it is one of 17 companies awarded
blanket purchase agreements (BPA) to provide email as a service (EaaS)
from the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA (News - Alert)). The estimated total
value of this contract is $2.5 billion for all companies.
CSC was awarded two GSA EaaS BPAs: one based on a Microsoft
Exchange solution and the other employing a Google (News - Alert) solution. These
BPAs, awarded during CSC's second quarter of fiscal year 2013, have a
two-year base period and three option years. The BPAs were awarded under
the GSA Schedule 70 contract.
Under the terms of the agreement, CSC will compete for task orders to
within government community, private, secret enclave and public clouds.
These offerings include EaaS (billed per mailbox), office automation,
electronic records management, migration and integration services, with
security requirements at the FISMA moderateimpact level (and FISMA
high-impact level for the secret enclave delivery model).
CSC's EaaS offerings build on the success of the company's BizCloud
for Government offering - the industry's first and only on-premises,
private cloud that is billed as a service and ready for application
workloads in just 10 weeks. As federal agencies strive to improve
operational efficiencies, reduce costs, meet federal mandates and
embrace cloud services, CSC's BizCloud for Government provides the
privacy, security and control of a private cloud with the agility,
convenience and elasticity of a public cloud.
"CSC has successfully delivered email as a service to government
organizations at the federal and state level, and that work has laid the
foundation for providing GSA with a solution that will reduce cost, meet
the President's cloud mandate and embrace cloud for enterprise
applications," said Mike Gaffney, vice president and general manager of
CSC's North American Public Sector Civil Group. "Government employees,
much like those in the commercial space, want to use personal devices
for their job and get work done remotely, and cloud services are the key
to making this a possibility. CSC's experience delivering cloud services
to both government and commercial clients will aid GSA as the agency
transitions to deliver as a service enterprise applications across the
Under CSC's cloud EaaS blanket BPAs, federal agencies will be able to
order a broad range of EaaS services faster and at better prices.
Agencies can provide the mobile workforce with email access from
anywhere, manage licenses and deployment more efficiently and obtain
faster updates for enhanced functionality and security.

government solutions and services. Headquartered in Falls Church, Va.,
