McLean, VA — Unisys Corporation announced that it has received a contract valued at $6.4 million from the Defense Information System Agency (DISA) to provide hardware maintenance services at DISA Defense Enterprise Computing Centers (DECCs). Under the 50-month competitively awarded contract, Unisys will service the 24 ClearPath Enterprise Servers that DISA acquired from Unisys between August 1998 and February 1999.
Effective August 1, 2000, Unisys will provide predictive, remedial and preventive hardware maintenance services for ClearPath servers located at DISA DECCs in Ogden, Utah, Oklahoma City, Okla., Montgomery, Ala., and San Antonio, Texas. The DISA DECCs provide information systems support to warfighters and others as required by the Department of Defense, under all conditions of peace and war.
