SAIC secures $1.3 billion deal to provide cloud services for the Treasury department

Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) has been awarded a $1.3 billion single source seven-year contract by the Department of the Treasury to provide T-Cloud, a range of cloud and professional services.

The T-Cloud contract supports the Treasury department’s adoption and transformation of a multi-cloud environment, by centralizing management of the systems infrastructure, platform and software-as-a-service by a single broker. In addition to full suites of AWS, Microsoft, Google, IBM and Oracle cloud services, there is additional opportunity to onboard new cloud service providers, says SAIC.

SAIC will be responsible for delivering a shared service cloud infrastructure model, and provide services for business operations, technical, security, network, service desk, subject matter expert support and transition services, according to the company.
