BLUE BELL, Pa., July 29 (UPI) -- The U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency has contracted Unisys to continue providing data center support services.

Under the award, Unisys will support activities such as enterprise resource planning; database management and administration; and Unix, Linux and Windows systems management. The activities are for applications used in logistics, maintenance and finance for the agency and other Department of Defense organizations.

"DISA's extension of our work at the Ogden Defense Enterprise Computing Center will allow Unisys to continue supporting the Defense Department as it moves forward with its Joint Information Environment to improve the department's information sharing and security posture," said Gene Zapfel, group vice president for defense and intelligence agencies, Unisys Federal Systems.

"We welcome this opportunity to reinforce our longstanding commitment to helping DISA achieve its mission to provide IT services to U.S. Defense Department agencies worldwide."

Unisys was chosen with 27 others in 2008 for task order eligibility under the ENCORE II program. The new task order is firm-fixed-price.

The new task order features a one-base year base period of performance and four one-year option. If all options are exercised, its value will be as much as $28 million.
