The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has become the first federal agency to take advantage of the General Services Administration’s (GSA’S) Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) with a plan to consolidate and migrate its public websites to the cloud.

The DHS has awarded a $5 million contract to CGI Federal for the job, which is designed to reduce costs and also comply with the “cloud first” policy instituted by former U.S. CIO Vivek Kundra, according to a GSA blog post by Mary Davie, the assistant commissioner for the GSA’s Office of Integrated Technology Service.
