G2X TAKE: Outside of a few key wins, such as one strategic $25M Cloud Advisory Services contract they added at VA 2018 and another to support HHS OIGUnisys has not been an overly significant player in the Federal Health market compared to the significant role they play across broader FedCiv and DoD, but those who know Diana Ceban, Kevin, Carlton and the rest of the SAIC Growth and Operations team are keenly aware that they will be looking to take advantage of the additional past performance, capabilities, and the broad set of Prime Unisys contract vehicles (see list here) that come along with acquiring such a significant Federal player across DoD and FedCiv.
