The General Services Administration (GSA) has issued a request for quotations on a suite of cloud services estimated to be valued at about $2.5 billion over five years as part of the Federal government’s strategy to think “cloud-first.”

The bidding request covers such areas as email-as-a-service, office automation (such as word processing and spreadsheets), electronic records management, and migration services. Vendors must submit their bids by June 19.

The RFQ takes a broad approach, seeking solicitations for private cloud, government-specific and public cloud options. The government expects the services will be consumed by a wide range of federal agencies, and can be extended to states and local governments.
