HP VA = $225 million
Hewlett-Packard Co. won a task order worth more than $225 million to deploy and manage Microsoft software for all desktop systems at the Department of Veterans Affairs.
The contract covers all Microsoft desktop software licensing for VA. The software licensing agreement was made under PCHS II, VA's Purchase of Computer Hardware and Software II contract. Compaq Computer Corp. won PCHS II, shortly before it was acquired by HP in May.
The VA win follows other major awards the Palo Alto, Calif., company has received, including a $17.5 million supercomputer project for NASA, a $35 million desktop and notebook contract with the Internal Revenue Service, and a $70 million storage project with Lockheed Martin Corp., Bethesda, Md., for the Air Force.
