Aquilent has been awarded a 3-year, $8 million agency-wide Cloud Services contract with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The win is a new single-award contract, procured through the CIO-SP3 Government Wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) administered through the National Institutes of Health Information Technology Acquisition and Assessment Center (NITAAC). The contract 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 contract allows any group or sub-agency within CDC to quickly and easily procure any cloud offering within Aquilent’s full breadth of cloud services. For CDC, it allows the agency to move its workload into the cloud in a consistent manner, while continuing to follow agency security and policy guidelines.

“CDC is one of the first agencies to make this type of cloud services award through CIO-SP3,” said Aquilent’s chief technology officer Mark Pietrasanta. “By doing its due diligence in advance and issuing a single-award contract, CDC has dramatically streamlined the procurement process. It can now speed its cloud adoption and, in turn, speed technology enhancements and innovation.”
