February 27th, 2014 By: John Rath
Dell has been awarded five year, $37.1 million IT services contract in support of General Services Administration. Dell was selected by the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the United States General Services Administration (GSA) to provide those agencies with IT services and solutions worth up to $22 billion. These contracts will allow Dell to help both government institutions operate more effectively and efficiently through the use of IT and IT services.
GSA Service Desk Support
Dell was one of a number of contractors awarded an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with a period of performance of 10 years and an aggregated ceiling value of more than $20 billion. Under this contract, Dell will help DHS develop, maintain and implement a full-range of IT solutions to help the agency better accomplish its mission. The $37.1 million contract came through prime contractor AAC and Dell will complete it through its Nashville, Tennessee and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma consolidated service centers and will expand the successful implementation of helpdesk support as Dell has implemented for other government customers.
“First and foremost we are looking forward to working with these key government customers to leverage our core competencies and help them accomplish their missions more efficiently and effectively,” said George Newstrom, vice president and general manager, Dell Services Federal Government. “This is an unmistakable indication that Dell remains one of the premier providers of IT services to the U.S. government and we’re looking forward to building on the momentum we’ve created within our business recently.”
Dell to build Government Cloud for NRC
Dell announced that it has been selected by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to build and install an on-premises, federal government compliant private cloud. Dell designed the cloud solution specifically for the NRC to help it achieve its business needs of reducing IT costs, simplifying operations, providing new technology and capability to the NRC user community and satisfying the Office of Management and Budget direction for each agency to establish a cloud instance. Through the private cloud deployment process, Dell Services Federal Government will help the NRC consolidate data centers, replace aging equipment and take advantage of modernized IT services to deliver improved IT performance and an enhanced customer experience.
“We’re focused on helping customers select the right cloud for their unique business needs, including security and compliance. The NRC is a perfect example as it has strict standards and requirements that its systems must support in order to carry out its vital regulatory oversight mission,” said George Newstrom, vice president, Dell Services Federal Group. “The Dell cloud solution is built to meet and exceed those requirements. We are, of course, humbled by the continued trust and confidence that NRC places in our end-to-end solutions and services and our team.”
