By CBR Staff Writer

Unisys has won a contract from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development agency for providing the agency with applications modernisation and end user support services.

Under this indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract vehicle, Unisys will support the range of the agency’s programs serving the citizens of rural America, including the Comprehensive Loan Program (CLP) and other initiatives that provide financial assistance related to the US Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Unisys said that the awarded contract has one base year and four one-year options, which are exercisable at the sole discretion of the government. The estimated value of the base year of the contract is $29.5m, and the contract has a ceiling value of $150m over five years.

The company said that the contract covers all aspects of application software development, maintenance and operations to support the agency’s loan program.

Unisys will provide services including analysis, software testing, help desk, standards compliance verification, disaster recovery support, systems programming, database management and training. It will also assist the agency in its transition to a service-oriented architecture (SOA) framework to allow the agency to integrate disparate applications across multiple computing platforms.
