U.S. courts release $95M Dell product contract

BPA open just to Dell Federal Premier Partners

The U.S. judiciary is developing a blanket purchase agreement to buy nearly $100 million on a variety of Dell products and related services.

The products will include IT systems, wide area networks, local area networks and software applications for the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, courthouses and data centers.

The competition is limited to Dell Federal Premier Partners. A single winner will be picked using a lowest price, technically acceptable evaluation criteria, according to solicitation documents.

In fiscal 2012, the judiciary spent about $26 million on Dell products and related warranties and services. The most spending was on Dell OptiPlex desktop computers at $9.2 million and Latitude laptops at $7.8 million.

The judiciary estimates that there will be a slight decrease in spending on those items in fiscal 2013.

Over the course of five years, the judiciary expects to spend $95 million on Dell products, including $70 million on desktops and portables and $25 million on servers.

Responses to the solicitation are due May 9.
