RCI wins managed services work

Resource Consultants Inc. won a $202 million contract for desktop services with the Army's Information Management Support Center. The seven-year contract is the largest single award the Vienna, Va.-based company has ever won, executives said.

The performance-based contract also marks a shift toward managed services for the center, which is under the Headquarters Department of the Army and supports about 90 Army agencies and staff elements, said Ron Lewis, RCI's vice president for information technology and program manager for the contract.

The new deal replaces a multivendor contract that was held by RCI and three other companies, which competed with each other for task orders.

By replacing that contract with a single winner, the Army is trying to streamline and standardize its IT operations, said Bill Warren, RCI's vice president of corporate development.

The Army is moving to more commercial practices by structuring the contract as a managed service one, which puts the onus on RCI and its teammates to meet service-level agreements, Lewis said.
