The awards recognize companies using acquisitions, corporate restructurings, strategic hiring and strategic alliances to bring more innovative solutions to their clients.
Washington Technology cited Unisys Federal's internal processes that "have either resulted in operational efficiencies or cost savings."

Unisys Federal was one of five companies selected for the award from a field of more than 20 finalists.
"We appreciate this recognition from this respected publication and view it as a reflection of our commitment to continue to improve service to our U.S. federal government clients," said Venkatapathi "PV" Puvvada, president of Unisys Federal.
