24 Apr 06. The Information Technology E-Commerce and Commercial Contracting Center (ITEC4), in conjunction with the Army Small Computer Program (ASCP) under Program Executive Office, Enterprise Information Systems (PEO EIS), awarded nine indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contracts for Army Desktop and Mobile Computing-2 this afternoon. Three large businesses; CDW Government Inc. of Vernon Hill, IL; Dell Marketing LP of Round Rock, TX and Hewlett-Packard Company of Greenbelt, MD, and six small businesses; Integration Technologies Group Inc. of Falls Church, VA; MPC-G of Nampa, ID; NCS Technologies Inc. of Manassas, VA; Telos Corporation of Ashburn, VA; Transource Computer of Phoenix, AZ and Westwood Computer Corporation of Springfield, NJ were selected.
“ADMC-2 is a important follow-on procurement for the Army. It provides desktops and laptops that focus on DOD and Army specific requirements and standards,” said Kevin Carroll, the Program Executive Officer for PEO EIS following the announcement. “This contract will continue to allow the smaller customers of the successful Army Small Computer Program to combine their needs with the commodity buying power of larger customers to take advantage of deeper discounts,” Carroll added.
Contract performance covers a three-year base period (including a 20 day start-up), with three two-year option periods, and a one-year option period for a total of ten years. The estimated contract value for all contracts over the 10-year life cycle is $5 billion. The contracts were awarded for the contract minimum of $2,500 for each of the nine contracts.
The ADMC-2 contracts will be the primary source for commercial off-the-shelf desktops, notebooks, ruggedized and semi-ruggedized devices, printers, and peripherals. Limited services to include installation, asset tagging, imaging, site surveys, and system configuration are also available. The ADMC-2 contracts will be the primary source for future Army Consolidated Buys.
All products offered are in compliance with Army and DoD standards. The contracts provide a wide array of products from multiple manufacturers offering the Army customer a choice of products to meet their requirements.
