The Navy has chosen three companies for a five-year, $550.8 million blanket purchase agreement to provide McAfee-branded IT products and services for use across the Defense Department, Coast Guard and intelligence community.
IT product resellers DLT Solutions, EC America and International Systems Marketing will vie for task orders to supply the offerings over the order’s duration.
They were the lone bidders for the BPA and the Navy made it available for 679 vendors to bid via the General Services Administration’s E-Buy website, the Defense Department said in its Wednesday contracts digest.
This BPA falls under DOD’s Enterprise Software Initiative that works to consolidate IT product and service acquisitions for the department.
Products covered under the agreement are for requirements such as client, data and server protection; data loss prevention; vulnerability management; email gateway security; and network intrusion prevention.
The award comes in the same week that the Navy chose IT product resellers Insight Public Sector for a separate $653.2 million BPA for the supply of Microsoft brand-name products throughout the service branch.
