Report: Pentagon, GSA Expect to Award $8B DEOS Cloud Contract in April

The Department of Defense and the General Services Administration said they expect to issue the request for quotes for a potential $8B cloud contract in February with plans to award it by April, Federal News Network reported Tuesday.

The Defense Enterprise Office Solution contract seeks to replace the Defense Enterprise Email Service, which the Defense Information Systems Agency currently operates.

The Pentagon intends to update and consolidate its collaboration and desktop services into the commercial cloud through the DEOS program that is expected to be competed through GSA’s Information Technology Schedule 70.

The report noted that GSA and DoD continue to collect industry input as they work to determine how to execute the DEOS contract.

Brian Hermann, chief of DISA’s enterprise services development division, said DEOS should provide the Pentagon with an automated enterprise platform for communications, productivity and collaboration.
