Geocent Wins Commercial Cloud Services Integration Contract

METAIRIE, LA – Geocent has been awarded an $8.5 million contract to support the SSC Atlantic Commercial Services Integration (CSI) Integrated Product Team (IPT) as the commercial cloud services integrator.

         Geocent, an information and technology firm headquartered in Metairie, LA, has been awarded a one-year base with a one-year optional year contract worth $8.5 million under its Core Infrastructure and Application Services Integration (CASI) contract with SSC Atlantic.

         Under this contract, Geocent will provide project management, information technology (IT) services including information assurance and security, cloud and mobile computing IT consulting and testing and validation support to the IPT. Geocent will base this work out of its Charleston, SC, office and employ 27 engineers and support personnel working with IPT personnel spanning four states or across the United States. Of those 27 professionals, Geocent will be hiring more than 20 new engineers and other personnel for its Charleston, SC, office.

         The CSI technical cloud brokerage function supports the rapid and appropriate delivery of cloud service offerings to the federal government. The CSI IPT offers cloud environment management, provides a framework for the assessment and migration of existing systems and applications, and works to maintain compliance with Department of the Navy (DON), Department of Defense (DoD), and federal policies for system and vendor architectures.

         Geocent’s integration services role will implement the IPT’s plan for an evolutionary model whereby cloud brokerage services will initially be offered to DoD programs.

         “We are very excited about this opportunity,” Ryan Lemire, Geocent’s Executive Director of Operations and Development in Charleston said. “Cloud-based development and integration is part of our core strength and helping the Navy and DoD migrate to cloud-based architectures will ultimately save a tremendous amount of resources for those who serve our nation.”

         With the IPT’s chosen infrastructure, Geocent will rapidly spin up or down computing capacity and quickly and flexibly expand existing on-premise infrastructures into the cloud.

         Geocent provides innovative software engineering, data center and core infrastructure, technology consulting, engineering, and scientific support to commercial, aerospace, defense, maritime, financial, healthcare, energy, and federal, state and local government customers. Geocent is headquartered in Metairie, LA, and has offices in Charleston, SC, Huntsville, AL, Stennis Space Center, MS, New Orleans, LA, Baton Rouge, LA and Tulsa, OK.
