BLUE BELL, US: The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has awarded a contract to Unisys to compete for task orders under the Centralized Operations, Maintenance and Management Information Technology (COMMIT) contract. Under the indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract, Unisys will compete to provide information technology operations and maintenance services to support the IT systems FEMA – a new Unisys client – relies upon to respond to crisis situations such as natural disasters or acts of terrorism.


The contract, capped at $500 million over five years, supports FEMA’s goal of modernizing its Information Technology Division and accelerating its ability to quickly field IT services supporting the systems used to manage the agency’s emergency response efforts, public alert process, asset visibility, finances and other aspects of its mission.

Unisys, one of five companies awarded a COMMIT IDIQ contract, will compete for task orders to provide a range of services to FEMA, including end user support; applications and network operations support; software configuration; software sustainment; hardware installation, maintenance, and operations support; and technology refresh for FEMA network assets.

“We appreciate this opportunity to work with FEMA and look forward to building a strong relationship and becoming a valued member of their team. This contract enables Unisys to build on our role of providing IT services to the critical agencies within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security,” said Tom Conaway, vice president and managing partner, Homeland Security, Unisys Federal Systems in the press release.

“This contract will give FEMA an efficient and flexible vehicle to obtain support services for the systems it needs to conduct its critical mission,” said Martin Mackes, partner, Homeland Security, Unisys Federal Systems. “We welcome the opportunity to provide to FEMA the expertise obtained throughout our long history as a provider of IT services to the federal government and to assist the agency in its mission to protect the nation from disasters and acts of terrorism.”
