IT consulting firm EDS, recently acquired by Hewlett-Packard, and its partner Comprehensive Computer Consulting, have won a five-year contract from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The contract is worth $12 million.

The two consulting firms will help the FDA move its data center from Rockville, Md. To White Oak, Md. The contract covers the implementation of the design phase of the application and hosting operations transition.

Robert L. Wopat, chief executive of Comprehensive Computer Consulting, says that the project involves the consolidation of more than 300 terabytes of storage, 100 network and security devices, and 525 servers.

The data centre contract was awarded under the FDA’s new Information Technology for the 21st Century (ICT21) program.
