The Army’s hunger for information technology equipment continues unabated, even as the military slims down from the long wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The service awarded a contract extension valued at $774,000,000 to the six companies that in 2007 won its Information Technology Enterprise Solutions - 2 Hardware (ITES-2H) deal pegged at $5 billion. The vendors compete for task orders to supply the Army with a wide variety of computer and network software and hardware, including notebook computers, servers, switchers, cables and displays.
This follows a $494 million extension in July, 2013, to the same pool. The 2013 contract extension expires next month and the new extension runs through June 23, 2015.
Firm fixed-price, multiple-award, task-order contracts went to the incumbent ITES-2H vendors: CDW Government LLC , Dell Federal Systems, International Business Machines Corp., Unicom Government Inc., Iron Bow Technologies LLC and World Wide Technology Inc.
