VITA has awarded contracts to multiple suppliers for the commonwealth's electronic government (eGov) services after a competitive procurement process. eGov contracts are for Web services, including the state website (virginia.gov), hosting, and operations and maintenance. 

The following awards were made:

  • Hosting - Site Vision, American Internet Services (AIS) and Cyberdata Technologies
  • Operations and Maintenance (O&M) for Web applications - Cyberdata Technologies and Broad Point Technologies

All Virginia public bodies, including state agencies, universities, school systems and localities, can use the eGov contracts.

The new approach using multiple suppliers provides enhanced value to the state, greater transparency, broader participation by multiple suppliers and cost-effective access to best-of-class technology services.
