American Systems awarded $20 million blanket purchase agreement

American Systems announced today that the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s IT Services had awarded it a blanket purchase agreement that could potentially be worth $20 million.

The agreement obligates American Systems to install and provide end-user support on communications systems. This will allow the Department of Agriculture’s service center agencies located across the country to share common resources in addition to improving efficiency and customer service.

American Systems CEO William C. Hoover stressed the importance of the work his company has been contracted to complete.

“With important responsibilities ranging from natural resource oversight to protection of our food supply, the USDA — and ultimately the citizens the agency serves — cannot do without modern communications systems, ” he said. “Over the course of almost 30 years, AMERICAN SYSTEMS has proven we have the expertise and geographic reach to solve complicated, time-sensitive IT and communications challenges like that of the USDA.”
