Intelligent Decisions Inc., Chantilly, Va., has been awarded two contracts totaling $7.7 million by the Department of Agriculture to modernize its computers in three of its branches, the company announced Nov. 6.
The order, placed by the agency's Service Center Common Computing Environment's Information Technology Acquisition Team, will support modernization efforts for the Farm Service Agency, Rural Development Center and Natural Resource Conservation Service.
The effort involves creating a common IT investment strategy. The contract calls for workstations from Dell Computer Corp., Austin, Texas, along with associated services.
Intelligent Decisions also announced the addition of two product lines to its Army Desktop and Mobile Computing blanket purchase agreement, first awarded in May and potentially worth up to $300 million.
Under this refresh of the agreement, Intelligent Decisions will exclusively offer ruggedized servers from Technology Advancement Group Inc., Dulles, Va., and the latest series of multimedia-enhanced notebooks from Sony Corp., Tokyo.
"Sony has been a consumer-oriented company, so we're excited to offer their products to the government. We think the convergence of data and video capabilities in Sony's VAIO [series of laptops] would be a useful platform for the Army," said Harry Martin, president and chief executive officer of Intelligent Decisions.
The company has received its first order from the vehicle, placed by the Army Communications-Electronics Command for $1 million worth of Technology Advancement Group servers.
The contract also extends to orders from other agencies in the Department of Defense, as well as the departments of Treasury, Justice, State and the Federal Aviation Administration, General Service Administration and Congress.
Intelligent Decisions, a systems integrator and IT reseller, is expected to generate $130 million in revenue for 2001, 80 percent of which is government work, Martin said.
