A new Deltek report says that U.S. civilian agencies awarded $75.5 million in cloud computing contracts during the federal government’s 2016 fiscal year that ended Sept. 30.
Deltek’s preliminary data on the federal government’s fiscal year 2016 contract value also showed that defense agencies have awarded $45.3 million in cloud contracts, approximately $30 million lower than their civil agency counterparts, Alexander Rossino, a principal research analyst at Deltek, wrote in a blog post published Wednesday.
The U.S. Air Force landed the top spot when it comes to the amount of cloud contracts awarded and was followed by the departments of Justice, Agriculture and Homeland Security.
The service branch awarded a total of $30 million in cloud contracts as of September that an include an award secured by Agile Defense for the Installation Processing Node Pathfinder program, Rossino wrote.
The IPN Pathfinder program seeks to provide a single hosting environment for the Air Force’s applications and core services in an effort to facilitate the service branch’s migration to the cloud.
Other deals cited by the report include:
- DOJ’s $28 million award to Dell for the deployment of a virtual desktop infrastructure
- USDA’s $20 million award to Toyakoi Ventures to equip the department’s financial systems with an SAP Hana cloud-based platform
- DHS’ $14.5 million award to Project Performance for the Victim Information Notification Exchange project
