Army Reserve units based in the Southwestern United States can now focus on their mission as warfighters without having to worry about their IT systems.
Ciber Inc., of Greenwood Village, Colo., has won a multimillion-dollar contract from the Army's 63rd Regional Support Command in Los Alamitos, Calif., to assume responsibility for all of the mission-critical IT services needed by the Army unit.
Under the contract, Ciber will handle help desk support and administration of wide area and local area networks. Ciber's Federal Outsourcing Division will provide the outsourced services.
'Ciber's support is imperative in keeping our team focused on our primary objective of organizing, training, and preparing mission-capable U.S. Army Reserve units and individual soldiers for combat,' said Al Edwards, chief information management officer for the 63rd RRC, in a company statement announcing the award.
The 63rd Regional Readiness Command is the command and control headquarters for as many as 15,000 soldiers assigned to active Reserve units in Arizona, California and Nevada.
Ciber also has supported several other regional readiness commands, including the 88th in Minnesota, the 90th in Arkansas and the 94th in Massachusetts. William Welsh is the deputy editor of
