DISA moves forward with milCloud 2.0
By DISA News - June 27, 2017
The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) awarded a competitive single award, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract for milCloud 2.0 Phase 1 commercial infrastructure services in Department of Defense (DoD) facilities on June 9, 2017, partnering with CSRA, LLC, to connect DoD networks in a private deployment model for use by the DOD community and DOD partners, to include transition engineering services.

The contract ceiling is $498 million and the minimum guarantee was also awarded on June 9, 2017 via task order 0001 in the amount of $600,000.

The period of performance for the base period is June 9, 2017 June 8, 2020 with five, one-year option periods.

DISA’s milCloud portfolio supports the DoD’s overall data center consolidation effort by providing the capabilities to shift legacy applications to cloud service providers.

The program aims to reduce DoD’s total cost of ownership for infrastructure services, validate the transition and adoption of cloud technologies across the department, and scale computing resources based on operational mission partner requirements.

milCloud 2.0 includes an on-premise Infrastructure-as-a-Service capability and features utility-based billing. This means mission partners will solely pay for actual usage, enabling them to scale infrastructure and application resources to meet shifts in real-time operational requirements.
