Treasury to Award $200M Contract for AWS Cloud Services

Treasury to Award $200M Contract for AWS Cloud Services

The Department of the Treasury is seeking Amazon Web Services sources that can provide cloud services to expand the agency's commercial cloud environment. Under an expected five-year $200M contract, a contractor shall improve the Workplace .gov Community Cloud in preparation for greater demand across the department, FedScoop reported.

WC2 currently resides in Amazon's The Federal Information Security Management Act enclaves.

In a solicitation, the agency said it aims to achieve "department-wide efficiencies in terms of access, scale, contracting and security." The anticipated award is part of the Department of the Treasury's $1.5B cloud project.

A consolidated approach to cloud infrastructure construction will reduce costs and avoid duplicate work, the agency said.
