The federal government has selected Eagle Professional Resources Inc., Maplesoft and TekSystems to supply IT contractors to Shared Services Canada, a federal department tasked with harmonizing computer systems.
Each agreement is worth up to $10 million over three years, and is intended to provide, on an as-needed basis, up to 185 "resources" – a frequently used synonym for contractors – including positions such as security specialists and operations support specialists, Eagle said in a press release.
"This is a great opportunity for Eagle and we look forward to adding value to SSC’s transformation agenda in every way we can," stated David O’Brien, Eagle’s vice-president of government services.
In 2011, Eagle said it surpassed $100 million in annual revenues for the first time in company history.
Shared Services is tasked with harmonizing the government’s e-mail systems, servers, hardware and software.
