The U.S. Army awarded Enlighten IT Consulting (EITC), a MacB company, a Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA) cloud and data center migration services, MacB said Monday.

This BOA, called the Army Cloud Computing Enterprise Transformation (ACCENT) was awarded for three years by the U.S. Army Contracting Command with a $247 million ceiling value across all holders. Awardees like EITC will be considered the preferred source by all Army commands and organizations that need commercial cloud hosting, data center migration, transition support, and application modernization services, MacB said.

The ACCENT contract vehicle is being used to procure technical support for migration of enterprise systems/applications to a commercial cloud environment or an Army Enterprise Hosting Facility (AEHF). It is managed by the Army’s Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems (PEO EIS).

ACCENT requirements come from the Army Data Center Consolidation Plan (ADCCP) for modernization and migration. The program overall aims to move designated IT applications, systems, and associated data to authorized commercial cloud service providers as well as consolidate data centers to AEHFs.

Under the agreement, EITC will deliver cloud engineering services and application migration solutions that include Infrastructure as a Service. The company’s experts will provide application and security requirements analysis, business process reengineering, data preparation, migration planning and scheduling, modernization (code refactoring and augmentation), and virtualization, the company said.

EITC will also cover cutover and back out planning, technical engineering, interface and service transition planning, training/compliance in a cloud service environment and go-live support.

“We have a proud history of supporting PEO EIS technical initiatives. We view the ACCENT BOA award as another key vehicle to providing innovative cloud engineering practices and processes to meet the challenges associated with critical IT infrastructures, as well as business systems across the Army user community,” Shawn Justice, senior vice president and general manager of EITC, said in a statement.

EITC provides advanced and mission critical big data infrastructure, secure cloud engineering, and analytic solutions for federal, state, and local clients. It focuses on national defense and security issues. EITC was acquired by MacB last December.

Other awardees under the ACCENT program include Amazon [AMZN] Web Services, Booz Allen Hamilton [BAH], CenturyLink [CTL], General Dynamics [GD], Leidos [LDOS], Northrop Grumman [NOC], Science Applications International Corporation [SAIC], Unisys [UIS], and several other companies.
