Army technology ITES-2H

Originally set to expire in early 2012, the U.S. Army has extended its Information Technology Enterprise Solutions – 2 Hardware (ITES-2H) contract through June 2015.

The extension, which comes as the Army waits on its ITES-3H contract, has a value of $774 million.

According to

ITES-2H provides mainly small computing needs, including commercial-off-the-shelf servers, workstations, desktops, notebooks and networking equipment, as well as software and incidental services. The award goes to existing contract holders – Dell Federal Systems, IBM Corp., Unicom Government, CDW Government, Iron Bow Technologies and World Wide Technology, Inc. – and expires June 23, 2015.

The Army issued a request for proposals on the $5 billion ITES-3H contract in September of 2012 and was expected to award the contract in 2012, but, according to the Washington Business Journal, nothing has materialized.

In July 2013, the Army awarded ITES-2H contract holders about $500 million, covering an extension that expires next month.
