29 named winners of $3B FirstSource II contract

DHS issues consolidated list of all small-business holders of IT products contract

After letting the news out in dribs and drabs about the winners of the $3 billion FirstSource II contract, the Homeland Security Department has released a consolidated list of the 28 winners of the IT products contract.

The awards are divided into five categories: historically underutilized business zone, 8(a), service-disabled, veteran-owned small business, economically-disadvantaged, women-owned small business, and small business.

The contract will be used by DHS primarily to buy IT products and related services. It is designed to work with DHS’s EAGLE II services contract.

DHS wants to use its buying power to lower prices, and implement IT standards across the department. They also want a fast, flexible buying vehicle.

A total of 36 awards were made, but several companies won in more than one category, which brought the total number of individual companies winning contract to 29.

The winners by category are:


  • Wildflower International
  • C&C International Computers and Consultants

  • Anacapa Micro Products
  • Universal Understanding
