The directorate manages, operates and develops complex software across a wide range of computing environments. Its goal is to consolidate 11 mainframe applications, 47 client-server applications and seven Web applications.

The contract, which was awarded on March 24, has a two-year base and five, one-year options. Work starts May 1.
