General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT), a business unit of General Dynamics announced today it was awarded the Defense Enterprise Office Solutions (DEOS) contract by the General Services Administration (GSA) in partnership with the Defense Department (DoD) and the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA).

GDIT will stand up and accredit DEOS cloud environments as well as support the migration of existing DoD Office 365 (O365) tenants into DEOS. The DEOS environments are intended to support over 3.2 million DoD users and GDIT will provide engineering, migration, training and support services for those users.

Under the contract, GDIT will replace legacy DoD IT office applications with an enterprise-wide standard cloud-based solution across all military services worldwide for both unclassified (IL5) and classified (IL6) environments. This solution will allow DoD users and mission partners to more seamlessly collaborate and share information regardless of their location or DoD organization. DEOS represents a major pillar of the DoD CIO's cloud strategy, the largest ever deployment of Microsoft O365 and the first deployment of O365 in a DoD classified environment.
