Qlarion Secures Several New Contracts with State and Local Governments

RESTON, VA. – Building on its growing reputation for supporting state and local analytics initiatives, Qlarion, a big data and analytics firm that specializes in government innovation, announced today that it has secured a number of new contracts with state and local governments.

Qlarion has been awarded two contracts with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Through the contract with the Commonwealth’s Office of the State Auditor’s Performance and Transparency Initiative, Qlarion is providing a range of big data, analytics and data visualization expertise. The Auditor is charged with uncovering fraud and abuse of taxpayer dollars in the Commonwealth, and the office’s staff relies heavily on data and analytics to identify red flags. Qlarion’s data visualization solution empowers 130 auditors with data mining capabilities and enables them to more efficiently leverage vast amounts of data.

The second contract with Massachusetts, IT63, is a competitive procurement contract vehicle to provide IT support to Executive Department Agencies within the Commonwealth. This contract vehicle is mandatory for use by Executive Department Agencies and has been responsible for over $138 million in spend. Through this contract, Qlarion will provide business intelligence and analytics expertise in the implementation of several technologies, including Informatica and Tableau.

Earlier this year, Qlarion was awarded the CATS+ contract vehicle with Maryland’s Department of Information Technology. This statewide contract allows agencies to procure IT services more efficiently by drastically reducing the timeline for Maryland agencies to solicit and obtain IT services. Through this contract, Qlarion will provide a wide variety of big data and analytics services to the state.

These new contracts add to Qlarion’s existing line-up of long-term partnerships and contracts with state and local governments, which includes the City of Boston, the Commonwealth of Virginia, Washington, D.C., the State of Illinois and West Virginia’s Department of Environmental Protection.
