Two federal government departments plan to install the Oprama System cloud-based collaboration service to centralize the management, control and audit of its public infrastructure projects.

According to Oprama,  the 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,  which is based in Gatineau, Que.

On Aug. 25, Oproma was awarded a one year with four additional one-year period(s) contract to provide an online system for the management of real property project information for PWGSC’s Real Property Branch.

Valued at $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 system 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 $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.
