PEO EIS to Host Army Cloud Hosting Contract Vehicle Industry Day July 29

By Product Director, Enterprise Computing Communications Team

On July 29, the Product Director, Enterprise Computing (PD EC) will host an Army Cloud Hosting Contract Vehicle (CHCV) Industry Day at Fort Belvoir. Program presentations include the Department of Defense Chief Information Officer on Cloud Policy, Army CIO/G6 on Army Cloud Strategy, and PD EC’s overview of the CHCV approach.

“The CHCV Industry Day will be a great source of information to industry on Army’s strategy and approach to DOD cloud policy”, said Mr. Archie Mackie, product director for EC. “We’re excited to engage with industry through our RFI, which closed on July 16, and this Industry Day July 29. Through these exchanges, industry and government are better informed about Army’s cloud services requirements and industry’s ability to provide and support them.”

Requirements Army is seeking include applications and associated data for migration to the commercial cloud. To accomplish migration, the Army intends to award a multiple award task order contract (MATOC) or indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract for cloud computing services. The number of applications, their readiness to migrate, and their end user populations will drive the magnitude of requirements, including data storage, transaction volume, and modernization needs. Cloud services adoption will grow substantially over the contract’s period of performance as the Army consolidates data centers and transfers eligible applications to the commercial cloud.

As the acquisition lead for the Army CHCV, PD EC is requesting information on commercial service delivery capabilities for providing Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS) cloud computing capabilities to Army applications.
