Unisys was awarded a contract worth up to $11.2 million to help the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency move its email services to the cloud for its 4,000 employees, the company announced Thursday.

The OCC is an independent bureau within the Treasury Department. The contract, worth up to $11.2 million over five years, has one base year followed by four one-year option periods, according to the press release.

“Under the contract, Unisys will provide analysis, design, transition planning and development services to help the OCC securely move all of its email services to the cloud,” according to the press release.

Unisys has been involved in several government cloud migrations, including helping the General Services Administration become the first federal agency to move all its employees to a cloud-based email and collaboration platform, and later performing similar projects for the Energy Department and National Archives and Records Administration, according to the press release.

They also helped the Interior Department be the first agency to move its financial management system to the cloud.
