With data center closings and consolidations slated to begin next year, the General
Services Administration last week awarded a trio of contracts to provide agencies with ADP
Computer Sciences Corp. and two teams-Unisys Corp. and Affiliated Computer Services
of Dallas, along with GTE Corp. and SunGard Data Systems Inc. of Philadelphia-each won
multiyear contracts to offer data center services to agencies on a task-order basis.
These indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts are designed to help
agencies meet the White House mandate to cut the number of government data centers in
half-to about 100-by June 1998.
