Interior Department Now Accepting Proposals for $10B Cloud Hosting Services Contract

The Department of the Interior has opened the bidding process for its potential 10-year, $1 billion Foundation Cloud Hosting Services 2 contract vehicle.

According to the DOI’s request for proposals, the contract will allow the department to procure cloud services from federal technology integrators who would also develop a cloud-production environment and provide deployment support. The DOI plans to choose up to five companies for the FCHS2 vehicle.

Proposals will be reviewed in two phases. The deadline for the first phase is Aug. 4 while the deadline for the second phase is Sept. 15, Washington Technology reported Monday.

The contract is a companion vehicle to the potential $1 billion Cloud Hosting Service III vehicle, to which an RFP was issued in November 2022. According to the RFP, work under the contract includes technology migration to the cloud and data center consolidation.

Cloud-related discussions are also taking place across the U.S. military.

In early June, the U.S. Army started a search for a third-party purchasing agent for cloud services. According to the Army, the contractor will provide cloud services on demand and renegotiate terms to promote competition and ensure that the service gets the best value for money.
