Better management of public infrastructure projects through secure Cloud Computing
GATINEAU, QC, March 7, 2012 /CNW/ - Two Government of Canada (GC) departments will use the OPROMA SystemTM cloud-based collaboration service to centralize the management, control and audit of its public infrastructure projects. Recognized as a solution to support best practices, this web technology will help departments deliver projects on time and on budget both in Canada and abroad. Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) and the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada (DFAIT) have recently awarded competitive multi-year contracts to Oproma, a Gatineau-based technology company.
On August 25th, Oproma was awarded a one year with four additional one-year period(s) contract to provide an online solution for the management of real property project information for PWGSC's Real Property Branch. Valued at C$1 million for the first year, this software-as-a-service will allow the Department to securely exchange property project documents while complying with confidentiality rules and requirements. The OPROMA SystemTM enables centralized and secure online collaboration of PWGSC staff with external stakeholders.
This January, DFAIT awarded Oproma, also through public tender, with a two year contract with a value up-to C$1.5 million, including three one year extension options. DFAIT's Project Implementation Services main objective is to facilitate the execution of projects abroad through the use of a secure cloud-based collaboration system available to external contractors and other parties. DFAIT already uses the OPROMA SystemTM to manage many projects across the world.
"Our team is very proud to help our government become a leader in the adoption of new web technologies for information management" said Marc Pageau, President and CEO of Oproma. He feels the OPROMA SystemTM will help government departments to efficiently meet their objectives while reducing costs.
