Chainbridge-CGI Joint Venture Secures Spot on $50B STARS III Technology Contract
The General Services Administration has awarded Azoole an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract under a $50 billion technology services contract vehicle.
Azoole, a joint venture between Chainbridge Solution and CGI Federal, may now compete for task orders under the 8(a) Streamlined Technology Acquisition Resource for Services III contract. The IDIQ deal includes a five-year base period of performance and a three-year option period, Chainbridge said Wednesday.
Stephanie Mango, president of CGI Federal and a 2022 Wash100 winner, said that the award will allow Azoole to use its information technology expertise to help the federal government tackle complex challenges. “Azoole represents the best of Chainbridge Solutions and CGI Federal,” Mango added.
Chainbridge said that it plans to compete for modernization work in areas such as agile software development, DevSecOps, cloud and low-code/no-code applications.
Aarti Smith, founder and CEO of Chainbridge, said that the joint venture allows Chainbridge’s and CGI Federal’s IT solutions to reach more federal customers.
Azoole was initially formed in late 2020 through a joint venture between Chainbridge and Array, a provider of application services in the federal, state and local government markets.
CGI Federal acquired Array in October 2021 as part of its efforts to expand work with the Air Force and Space Force. According to CGI Federal, the transaction resulted in a combined portfolio of modernization, cloud, data analytics and cybersecurity expertise.
