U.S. General Services Administration Obtains Benefits of Cloud-Based Google Apps for Government Implemented by Unisys — Press Release

November 26, 2012 by · Comment
Filed under: Business Line, Companies, Events, IT, logistics, Press Releases, Unisys 

New email and collaboration system has transformed the way GSA employees work, increasing efficiency and cutting costs

BLUE BELL, Pa., Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – More than a year after Unisys (NYSE: UIS) transitioned the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) to cloud-based Google Apps for Government, agency officials say the new tools have transformed the way they conduct their business and led to increased collaboration and reduced costs.

The GSA awarded a contract to Unisys in late 2010 to install Google Apps for Government, which includes email and collaboration tools. About 17,500 GSA employees began using these tools in June 2011. Since then, GSA estimates it has saved about $2 million and expects another $15 million reduction in IT costs over the next five years.

GSA employees have created and shared more than 274,000 documents in Google Docs, and created more than 500 internal web sites using Google Sites.

GSA also cites a nearly 90 percent reduction in server energy consumption and 85 percent reduction in related carbon emissions. According to estimates by Google, the cost savings from this reduction in energy use will be $285,000 annually.

Examples of how Google Apps has transformed the agency were illustrated by the experiences of two GSA organizations: the Federal Systems Integration and Management Center (FEDSIM) and the Public Building Service (PBS).

FEDSIM

FEDSIM, the GSA organization that provides acquisition services to enable large-scale technology projects for other federal agencies, has used Google Apps to promote the mobility of its workforce. Many FEDSIM employees must work remotely at client sites, and Google Apps allows them to use their smartphones and tablets to stay in touch with their managers, edit documents and to view their colleagues’ calendars.

The video chat functionality in Google Apps helps employees reduce travel expenses while still allowing them to collaborate “face-to-face.”

In addition, FEDSIM used Google Sites to set up an internal portal within three days, at no additional cost – a process that previously could have required months when the work had been done through a contractor.

The infrastructure is now entirely under FEDSIM control. Employees use it as a repository for forms and policy documents; to reserve conference rooms and government-owned cars; to create and share award nominations, marketing slides, training materials and other documents. They are continually adding new features.

Public Building Service

The managers of PBS quickly recognized the potential of Google Apps as a knowledge management tool for organizing information and making it accessible to the workforce using a variety of devices, including smartphones and tablets. The organization has rolled out a project this year to use the tools to create a knowledge hub that serves as a focal point for sharing best practices, policies and standards for property management.

PBS used Google Sites to set up “communities” built around various mission areas such as facilities management, leasing and customers – allowing managers in different regions to share information on their activities. For example, PBS manages multiple facilities for the FBI across the country, and PBS managers who work with the FBI were able to use Google Apps to discuss common challenges and best practices.

Consequently, PBS is now better positioned to address GSA’s overall goal of driving consistency and standardization across the organization. As one PBS regional official stated, “The main benefit for me is knowing that there is a team of individuals working to reduce redundancy in effort.”

More importantly, Google Apps provides standardization and consistency, and that makes PBS more efficient and leads to better customer service.

“GSA has proven that innovative cloud-based solutions can help the government improve operations while cutting costs,” said Venkatapathi “PV” Puvvada, group vice president for civilian agencies at Unisys Federal Systems. “We are thrilled to be GSA’s industry partner in this project and look forward to helping them continue to maximize the benefits of these tools as well as helping other agencies to follow GSA’s lead.”

Oshkosh Wins Another Contract

Following up on its recent MRAP-ATV and heavy truck contracts Oshkosh announced that they have been awarded another contract to build Family of Medium Tactical Vehicle (FMTV) trucks and trailers. This contract is called the rebuy program. If all options are exercised over the next five years the contract could be worth up to $2.6 billion.

The initial order is for about $280 million worth of the vehicles. The rebuy seems to indicate that this contract is to begin replenishing the supply of the vehicles in the Army. The U.S. lost a great deal of vehicles in Iraq and Afghanistan to IED and mines. These were of all types including tanks, armored personnel carriers and logistic support vehicles like the FMTV.

Cobham Wins US Army Personal Cooling System Deal Worth Up to US$110 Million — Press Release

Cobham Wins US Army Personal Cooling System Deal Worth Up to US$110 Million

NEWS RELEASE

7 July 2009

Orchard Park, New York – Cobham has been awarded a five year, Indefinite Delivery, Definite Quantity (IDDQ) contract from the US Army to provide Microclimate Cooling Systems to the Air Warrior program office. Cobham’s initial task order is valued at approximately US$6.5 million, with expected revenue of up to $110m during the next five years.

Work under this contract will be performed by Cobham Life Support, a strategic business unit within Cobham’s Mission Systems Division, at Orchard Park, New York. The US Army Aviation and Missile Command is the contracting authority. This award was announced June 30, 2009 on the US Government’s Federal Business Opportunities website.

Kelly Coffield, Cobham Life Support President said:

“We are pleased with the US Army’s continued commitment to increasing the performance of the warfighter through the use of microclimate cooling. These systems significantly contribute to keeping our forces mission ready and combat effective.”

Cobham’s Microclimate Cooling System (MCS), a compact, lightweight, self-contained vapor compression cycle cooling system, is designed for operation on helicopters and ground vehicles and can accommodate single or multiple users. More than 15,000 systems are employed by US military helicopters – including the AH-64 Apache, the CH-47 Chinook and the UH-60 Blackhawk – and US military ground vehicles including the Bradley, Stryker and M1A1 tanks where high temperatures can limit human operational effectiveness.

The MCS helps prevent heat stress by maintaining safe core body temperatures. It extends the mission duration of Soldiers, Marines, and Airmen who are deployed to extreme climates, or who are thermally burdened by required body armor or other protective clothing. To see how the microclimate cooling system serves the troops, please view Cobham’s microclimate cooling video.
