The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, a Treasury Department bureau, has tapped Unisys to help it migrate to enterprise-wide cloud-based e-mail services, according to the company in an Aug. 12 statement from the vendor.

Unisys has helped other agencies with cloud transitions. In 2010, it worked with the General Services Administration to migrate agency employees to cloud-based email. It also said it worked with the Interior Department earlier this year to transition an SAP-based financial management system to cloud technology.

OCC technology is led by CIO Stephen Warren, who was in charge of IT at the Department of Veterans Affairs on an acting basis from 2013 to 2015.
