US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Grants $4M Contract to Salient Federal Solutions

By Matt Paulson

Salient Federal Solutions is an information technology service provider catering to the intelligence, national defense, homeland security and federal civilian markets. The company trains employees, engineers data collection solutions, and provides intelligent analytic services to its government clients. Most recently, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) sought out Salient Federal Solutions to support its cloud-based services, awarding the company with a new five-year contract anticipated to be worth approximately $4 million.

As part of the agreement, Salient will provide cloud-based managed services to support the operations of the EEOC’s data centers. These operations include telecommunications infrastructure, disaster recovery operations, and EEOC’s core mission applications. The agency hopes Salient’s cloud-based management and cloud brokerage services will allow it to better leverage real-time statistics in their efforts to end workplace discrimination. The EEOC will be working with Salient for the next five years in their mission together, and in the long run they aims to use cloud-based services to make a better American working environment for all.

In a statement, Salient CEO Brad Antle said, “We understand the complex hosting mission EEOC requires and appreciate their confidence in Salient’s expertise to improve secure hosting for current and future mission systems.” According to Antle, “This is a great opportunity for Salient to implement some of its innovative solutions to help EEOC achieve increased system performances, security and flexibility using rapid development of open source, cloud and virtualization technologies.”

Salient’s expertise in cloud technology and information services looks to help accelerate the EEOC’s mission by utilizing several deployment options. The company will make use of infrastructure, platform and software as a service (IaaS, PaaS and SaaS respectively) in order to improve the EEOC’s data collection and analysis capabilities, offering 99.99% up time.
