Interior awards first platform as a service cloud contract


The Department of the Interior’s Office of Law Enforcement and Security awarded what is believed to be the first platform as a service cloud computing contract in the federal government.

The contract, awarded to Verizon, will provide an Interior-wide information collection, analysis, and reporting system for incident information.

The department’s Incident Management, Analysis and Reporting System, or IMARS, will provide a common capability across all participating functional areas for capturing and reporting law enforcement and security incident information and will be configured, tested and deployed to over 6,000 users in fiscal year 2012.


IMARS will be deployed across all agencies and locations.
