Excella Wins DHS Contract for Continued IT Modernization Support
Excella announced that it has been selected as part of the Department of Homeland Security U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement contract. Under the contract, the company will provide Agile software delivery, full-stack development and cloud support. Agile support teams on and offsite will support rapid modernization, increase data availability for users and create consistency across the agency, Excella said Thursday.
Christina Seiden, vice president of strategic growth at Excella, said her company’s Agile expertise will enable a rapid, streamlined and secure transformation from traditional workflows to the agency’s new cloud-based system. Excella’s holistic, experienced approach to Agile ensures consideration of business and user outcomes, leading to the best solution for an agency’s mission, she added.
Information technology modernization is pivotal to the DHS’ ability to deliver on its mission to protect Americans from threats to public safety. Rapid modernization and automation of DHS internal data systems will eliminate the risks posed by traditional, paper-based data storage systems, including the deletion of data during a disaster. In order to keep Americans safe from terrorist threats, DHS provides automated, reliable access to mission-critical data, Seiden said.
In a statement, Excella said it offers an adaptable, flexible and sustainable approach to Agile services. The company has supported Agile development for the DHS for three years, with nearly two decades of experience successfully leading transformations and modernizing legacy IT systems across federal government agencies.
Earlier in January, Excella won a five-year, $117 million task order to develop and update IT systems and applications for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. This award follows a separate five-year, $15.9 million task order the company received from the U.S. ICE in December to perform adaptive maintenance support and enhancement services work.
