Energy awards $409 million task order for IT services

Managed seats and IT services will be a large component of a five-year, $409 million task order that the Energy Department awarded last week to RS Information Systems Inc.

Under the task order'the largest ever won by the 10-year-old, McLean, Va., company'RSIS will support services for IT and telecommunications as well as consult on enterprise architecture and IT security.

Energy is 'very interested in moving toward a managed-services paradigm,' and RSIS has experience from a $100 million seat management contract with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, said Rodney P. Hunt, RSIS' president and chief executive officer.

The order was a small-business set-aside awarded through the Commerce Department's Commerce Information Technology Solutions governmentwide acquisition contract.

Even though it was awarded through COMMITS, the order is fully funded for a minimum of $409 million, Hunt said.

The department expects RSIS to start work April 1.
