Alienware Corp. won a five-year information technology contract from the General Services Administration to sell its high-performance computer systems to federal agencies and state and local governments, the company said today.
"The federal supply schedule contract will streamline the purchasing process significantly for our federal, state and local government customers, and will open the door to many others," said Arthur Lewis Jr., vice president of Alienware's government and corporate business division. "This contract is the first of many initiatives we are working on to ensure that we offer our government customers competitive pricing, flexibility, ease of purchase and variety."
Based in Miami, Alienware is a privately held, minority-owned company that manufactures computer desktop and mobile systems for digital video editors and professionals, gaming enthusiasts, small and midsized businesses and customers in government, education and health care.
Among the company's federal clients are the Defense Department, the Army, Air Force, Navy, NASA, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and the Sandia, Oak Ridge and Los Alamos national laboratories.
Alienware employs 500 workers at facilities in Miami, Ireland and Costa Rica. For fiscal 2003, which ended Sept. 30, revenues were $92 million, the company said.
