Government services provider Perspecta Inc. has been awarded a 19-month, $12.6 million contract to design, develop and implement California’s information technology platform that would expand public access to the finances of state candidates, donors and lobbyists. The Virginia-based firm will partner with Connecticut-based PCC Technology Inc. to replace the existing CAL-ACCESS system by creating a product that will allow candidates and other parties to fulfill filing requirements more efficiently and make it easier for the system to be updated after direction from the state legislature.
“At Perspecta, it is our purpose to improve the lives of our nation’s citizens,” said Mac Curtis, president and CEO of Perspecta. “We are honored to perform the critically important work of improving the quality of public access to information for California’s citizens while expanding our services in the state of California.”
Perspecta, which launched and went public last year, is a member of the Government Technology & Services Coalition, which owns HSToday.

“This is going to be such an exciting year for us — I’m already seeing an incredible amount of collaboration across the business and a real sense of teamwork building,” Curtis told Washington Exec, which named him as one of the region’s top 25 CEOs to watch. “I’m also seeing how the Perspecta culture translates into winning and delivering exceptional value to our customers.”
