Army releases $5B ITES hardware RFP

The Army has released the solicitation for its $5 billion Information Technology Enterprise Solutions 3- Hardware contract.

Proposals for the five-year contract are due Oct. 22.

The Army will use the contract, known as ITES-3H, to buy a variety of IT equipment to support the Army’s IT infrastructure. The hardware has to be compatible with the Army’s network operations and net-centric operations.

The equipment to be purchased will fall into nine broad categories, such as Unix and non-Unix services; workstations, desktops and thin clients; storage systems; networking equipment; video equipment; and cable, connectors and accessories.

The contract will have multiple winners, who will compete with each other for task orders. ITES-3H has a three-year base and two one-year options.

ITES-3H replaces ITES-2H, which is held by CDW, Iron Bow Technologies, Dell Inc., GTSI Corp., IBM Corp. and World Wide Technology.

According to Deltek, $4.1 billion in task orders have been awarded under the contract over the last five years. Iron Bow and World Wide have captured the most business, each taking in over $1 billion in awards. IBM had the lowest amount with $136.6 million in business.
