Savvis Federal Systems, a subsidiary of Savvis Inc. in St. Louis, said Thursday it has been awarded a $9.8 million, five-year contract to provide information technology services for the U.S. Federal Election Commission.
Under the terms of the agreement, Savvis will provide managed hosting, security and network services to the FEC in two Savvis data centers. Savvis also will host the fec.gov website.
Savvis Federal Systems was originally awarded a five-year deal with the FEC in March 2006. This new contract was awarded to Savvis by the FEC after a competition with other vendors.
Savvis serves several high-profile U.S. government agencies, including the Small Business Administration and the National Labor Relations Board, through cloud, Web hosting and other services.
Town & Country-based Savvis, led by Chairman and CEO James Ousley, operates 31 data centers worldwide, including in Hazelwood, Mo. Savvis reported revenue of $933 million in 2010.
