A state department that’s essential to IT made six purchases of IT services in June and spent more than $2.3 million — more than in May, when it spent $249,912.80 on cost estimation as a service (CEaaS).

The California Department of Technology (CDT) spent exactly $2,436,783 on those six IT services purchases in June. Here, with rounding, is what that money paid for, based on data in the State Contracting and Procurement Registration System:

  • $1.5 million to Tek Yantra for “SOC maintenance and operations support services,” likely to the Security Operations Center. This is a two-year contract, from June 6-June 5, 2024.

  • $267,000 to Interskill Learning to renew its software-as-a-service subscription to the company’s Online Mainframe eLearning Workforce software. This is a three-year contract from June 9-June 8, 2025.
  • $203,000 to System Solutions DVBE for “Esri Enterprise Advantage program.” This is a one-year pact, from June 9-June 8, 2023.
