The Army’s Computer Hardware Enterprise Software and Solutions (CHESS) – its designated primary source for commercial off-the-shelf IT, hardware and software – is reducing costs, keeping up with technology trends and driving the evolution of net-centric strategies to shape the Army's warfighting capabilities. CHESS has succeeded by leveraging the Army Desktop and Mobile Computing-2 (ADMC-2) contracting vehicle, a suite of IT Enterprise Solution (ITES) contracts and by practicing key aspects of two acquisition approaches: Category Management and Strategic Sourcing. This session will provide:
-- An overview of CHESS portfolio
-- CHESS’s support of the Army's Category Management
-- Flexible procurement strategies for changing demands
-- CHESS procurement across government
-- A glance at follow-on activities for ITES-4H
