CHANTILLY, Va., Jan. 4, 2012Citizant, a leading provider of full-life-cycle information technology solutions to the federal government, announced today it has started work on two additional IT projects related to its current contract supporting the Department of Housing and Urban Development with enterprise architecture and enterprise information management solutions. The task orders are being funded under Citizant's current five-year, $17 million contract with HUD, which began last August.

"Citizant has extensive expertise and proficiency in enterprise architecture and has a unique EA management approach that helps us achieve maximum results for customers, which is especially powerful on solutions involving information sharing," said Paul Bize, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Citizant.
