Announcing the contract win, UltraServe CEO, Samuel Yeats, said AGIMO required support for a new website it needed to launch and “UltraServe was able to provision the hosting and security services within 24 hours of receiving the original confirmation of the contract.”
Hailed as a departure from historic procurement practice, Yeats said the new streamlined process established by AGIMO was designed to simplify procurement of cloud and cloud-like services for Government agencies as a result of pre-agreed arbitration and scope of procurements.
“This is a fundamental shift in how government has been able to purchase technology infrastructure previously. We are enabling agility and innovation for government agencies by delivering rapid infrastructure and services to support campaigns of any scale.
AGIMO only announced the list of approved suppliers as recently as last month, and Yeats said the contract win was exciting news for UltraServe, and clearly demonstrated the promised efficiency of AGIMO’s DCaaS MUL process.
“Further, the awarding of contracts following on so quickly from AGIMO’s finalisation of the supplier list last month, reflects a committed intent and an inherent understanding by Government agencies of the benefits of the DCaaS MUL,” Yeats said.
The DCaaS MUL program is designed to provide federal government agencies with a simple way to procure cloud and cloud-like services under $80,000 for less than 12 months. The three types of cloud services available through the MUL include Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).
