CSRA, which has a presence in Bossier City through its Integrated Technology Center, has been awarded a $498 million contract by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to support the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) milCloud 2.0, Phase 1.

MilCloud is a cloud-services portfolio, managed by DISA, that features an integrated array of capabilities designed to drive agility into the development, deployment and maintenance of secure DoD applications.

DISA’s milCloud is recognized by the defense industry as a coveted contract and positions CSRA as the industry leader for cloud and military information technology (IT). CSRA’s base contract period runs three years through June 8, 2020, and includes five one-year options.

CSRA’s prominence in Bossier City is the result of teamwork, hard work and continuing partnerships between the company and officials in local, parish and state government. CSRA continues to add to its professional staff, and the local economy, by recently hiring its 600th employee.

Company officials say the contract leverages CSRA’s Integrated Technology Center and will provide an additional level of support across the cloud network. CSRA will also enhance on-board efficiencies for DoD consumers, reduce costs, increase efficiency of computing platforms and improve the overall IT security posture of the government.

Pursuing the contract pulled together capabilities of CSRA’s alliance team, solution architects, pricing strategists, growth team, business area team and the ARC-P team to deliver a solution that out-competed the best of the best military cloud providers.

ARC-P is part of Autonomic Resources, a CSRA company, and is an innovative cloud services company serving government, civilian, DoD, federal contractors and government services firms.
