WASHINGTON, May 1, 2012 — Quality Business Engineering, a leading management and technology consulting organization for the federal government and defense community, today announced it has been awarded a $4 million task order to support the U.S. Army’s expanding cloud computing initiatives.

For QBE, it is a critical milestone of our continued growth as a leading provider of technology services for the Army.”
During the 18-month task order contract, QBE will provide cloud computing architecture and engineering services as well as a state-of-the-art proof-of-concept laboratory to the Army’s Acquisition, Logistics and Technology Enterprise Systems and Services and Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems organizations.
