The Army has awarded 17 companies a spot on the latest iteration of its contract for hardware, software and related services, the $5 billion IT Enterprise Services-3 Hardware (ITES-3H).
The contract, somewhat long in the making, was intended to replace ITES-2H in 2014 but was delayed by protests and other issues, Washington Technology reported. ITES-2H, which had six contractors, was extended several times, $1 billion to its ceiling.
The Army received 50 bids for ITES-3H, awarding spots on the contract to eight large businesses and nine small businesses, which will compete for task orders.
The large businesses:
- Hewlett-Packard Enterprise
- World Wide Technology
The small businesses:
- Dynamic Systems
- Government Acquisitions
- Intelligent Decisions
- Iron Bow
The contract, which is open to all government agencies, runs through Feb. 21, 2021.
