Treasury banks on EDS to upgrade computer services

Contractor to help improve connectivity, collaboration, performance and user experience

EDS, which as of Sept. 24 will be known as HP Enterprise Services, has won a $30 million award from the Treasury Department to upgrade computer services.

The award from Treasury’s Office of the Comptroller of the Currency calls for the Hewlett-Packard Co. subsidiary to improve the connectivity, collaboration, performance and overall user experience for the OCC workforce by providing and maintaining end-user computing resources as well as mobility services.

Under the agreement, EDS will provide comprehensive workplace services support, deploy HP desktops, workstations, notebooks, wireless products, portable printers and scanners to help OCC meet the objectives of the Integrated Mobile Employee Technology Refresh and Optimization program, known as I-METRO.

EDS’ solution will consolidate the number of desktops and help meet the needs of OCC employees by providing HP mobility solutions tailored to improve productivity, simplify remote access and reduce support costs, according to a company announcement.

The solution also offers nationwide connectivity and availability of the agency’s round-the-clock, mission-critical applications, while supporting compliance with all applicable federal policies and regulations.

The contract is structured to enable OCC’s mobile bank examiners to more productively regulate and supervise the 1,600 national banks and 50 federal branches of foreign banks in the United States. Together they account for nearly two-thirds of the total assets of all U.S. commercial banks.

OCC charters, regulates and supervises national banks to ensure a safe, sound and competitive banking system that supports both the citizens and the economy of the United States.

Hewlett-Packard Co., of Palo Alto, Calif., ranks No. 12 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
