Dell Corp. will provide the Veterans Affairs Department with PCs, technology and services at more than 1,200 VA sites nationwide under a four-year, $476 million contract.
In a May 25 announcement Dell said it will provide the VA with approximately 600,000 PCs and monitors.
The company had been providing PC technology and support to VA under a previous competitively bid three-year contract.
Under this new award, Dell will provide deployment services and support to VA and assist the department as it continues to transform its end-user computing environment to improve access, manageability and security.
Using Intel’s latest technology, the new solutions also will improve flexibility and mobility among VA employees and enable the organization to more quickly transition to efficient solutions such as desktop virtualization, the announcement said.
Several service-disabled, veteran-owned small businesses will support the 1,200 sites, including Four Points Technology, HMS Technologies, Arma Systems, Cliveden and Alpha Ten.
Dell Corp., of Round Rock, Texas, ranks No. 11 on Washington Technology’s 2010 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
