GTSI Corp. will deliver and install more than 8,000 notebook, tablet and desktop computers over the next five years to 98 Defense Department dependents' schools in Europe and the Middle East.
GTSI won three blanket purchase agreements, worth potentially $12.7 million, from the Defense Department Dependents Schools-Europe, which runs schools for children of military and defense employees stationed overseas.
In addition to the hardware and software, GTSI also will offer a range of services stateside to the Defense Educational Activity, including asset tagging and imaging.
GTSI partnered with Gateway Inc. and Prism Point Technologies to develop a service solution to meet the needs of students, faculty and executives. Gateway is supplying the laptops, tablets and desktops. GTSI also recently teamed with Gateway to provide its computing solutions to Air Force Academy cadets.
GTSI has about 750 employees and ranks No. 27
on Washington Technology's 2006 Top 100
list of federal prime contractors.
