Peraton has secured a contract worth up to $1 billion through the United States Geological Survey (USGS), under the Department of the Interior (DOI), to manage the acquisition of secure cloud services to transition into a single hybrid enterprise cloud cluster. The Cloud Hosting Solutions (CHS) III contract consists of a five-year base term and three two-year option periods.

The DOI manages America’s vast natural and cultural resources and employs an estimated 70,000 people across nine technical bureaus, including the USGS.
