The project is the most recent example of Unisys success helping government agencies achieve the savings and efficiencies of cloud-based solutions. Last year, Unisys announced it had completed the transition of 5,000 employees at the Department of Energy's Idaho National Laboratory to the cloud-based solution.

Steve Soroka, group vice president, Unisys Federal Systems stated, "We are working with the DOE and its contractors to bring the efficiencies and cost-savings of the cloud to those who support this program."In May of this year, Unisys also completed a similar transition of 4,500 employees at the National Archives and Records Administration, a project selected for a Government Computer News Award for "showing technical creativity, a willingness to test emerging technologies and the perseverance to push for big, cross-agency IT improvements in an era of budget and cost cutting."
