Provides Technological Support for Agency’s Ongoing Digital Transformation Initiative
McLean, VA (April 19, 2016) – HumanTouch, LLC, a global leader in cloud and on-premise solutions that maximize visibility and strategic insight into business operations, today announced that the U.S. Census Bureau has awarded the company one of five small business blanket purchase agreements (BPA) as part of the Systems Engineering and Integration program tier. The contract term is seven (7) years and has a total estimated value of $561 million.
The acquisition framework consists of the following three tiers: enterprise, program and project created to support major efforts such as the Census Enterprise Data Collection and Processing (CEDCaP) program, the 2020 Census and the Economic Census. HumanTouch will provide systems architecture, engineering, development and integration services at the “project” level throughout the U.S. Census Bureau in support of these efforts. As part of the BPA, HumanTouch has already received a task order to provide support to the CEDCaP – the integration of 14 projects that enable systems infrastructure to communicate in a standardized format.
“A key differentiator for us is our access to technologies and products that will provide even more value and efficiencies to the Census Bureau,” said Richard Hill, Senior Vice President at HumanTouch. “We have expertise and access to infrastructure-as-a-service, platform-as-a-service, SOA frameworks, and application development platforms that can significantly reduce the cost and complexity of our systems engineering and integration work.”
