(Gawkwire) – Force 3, delivering the best in federal security, unified communications, networking, data center, and medical imaging solutions today announced it has won a multi-year blanket purchase agreement (BPA) with the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) for data center equipment, including servers, racks, data storage, and networking gear.
Force 3 is one of eleven companies selected to provide a range of commercial, off-the-shelf data center and networking equipment through GSA’s National Information Technology Commodity Program (NITCP) small business initiative. The estimated total value of this contract is expected to exceed $267 million over the life of the contract. The BPA can be used by any federal agency to procure IT equipment.
“This award enables government agencies to acquire mission critical IT solutions through a smooth and efficient procurement process with proven suppliers. This BPA provides Force 3 with a significant contracting vehicle that will help us ensure our customers are successful as they refresh and upgrade their IT infrastructure in the coming years,” said Mike Greaney, Chief Revenue Officer at Force 3.
GSA awarded this BPA with a performance period of one base year with two option years. NITCP expects this BPA to drive significant federal business to small companies, while supporting NITCP’s initiatives to provide federal agencies with easy and quick access to low-cost IT products. Users may save 15 to 37 percent when using the IT Commodity BPA compared to ordering off multiple award schedules.
