The six companies will compete for task orders under the contract for hardware, software and related services. The Defense Department announced the winners after 5 p.m. Friday.

The winners are:

  • Dell (contract number W91QUZ-07-D-0006)

The contract extension has a maximum value of $494 million and will support the ITES 2 program, which expires next year.

According to data on the Deltek GovWin database, the contract brought in $611 million in task orders in 2012 . Over the life of the contract, it has been used for $4.6 billion in task orders.

Based on those numbers, Deltek estimates that the ITES 3H contract will be worth $5 billion. The bids for that contract are currently being evaluated.
