IBM’s federal unit has captured two contracts in recent weeks that together could be worth more than $420 million.

The company said today it won a blanket purchase agreement to implement a financial management and procurement system for the Justice Department. The pact, which could span as much as seven years, is potentially worth $150 million, according to IBM.

The Justice win follows a Defense Department award to provide information technology support services for worldwide commissary sales. The contract, which IBM landed late last month, would be worth more than $270 million if the department exercises all options.

Under the Justice BPA, IBM will install components of CGI-AMS’ Momentum software. Those components include core accounting/general ledger, financial management reporting, payment management, receivables management, funds management, cost management, and procurement.

IBM is teaming with the following companies on the BPA: BEA Systems, BearingPoint, CGI Federal, COMSO, Delta Solutions, Nortel PEC, Unisys, Codesoft and Collins Consulting.

IBM’s commissary project involves the commercial advanced resale transaction system, which will replace the Defense Commissary Agency’s current point-of-sale system. The agency has close to 200 commissaries worldwide.
