Carahsoft Technology has been awarded a modification to add seven additional vendors to its list of software publishers on a potential 10-year, $820.4M blanket purchase agreement for asset management software.

The company said Tuesday the new software publishers added to the agreement are CloudBolt Software, Ivanti, Nutanix (Nasdaq: NTNX), Recorded Future, ServiceNow, Splunk (Nasdaq: SPLK) and Veritas Technologies.

In September, Carahsoft was one of the eight resellers that secured spots on the BPA to provide commercial-off-the-shelf software offerings for the Department of Defense, intelligence community and the U.S. Coast Guard.

“Carahsoft’s vendor and reseller partners are committed to ensuring that our government customers are able to maximize the value of their IT portfolios, keep pace with innovation, meet compliance requirements, and be assured that they’re getting the best prices possible,” said Craig Abod, president of Carahsoft and a 2020 Wash100 award winner.

He added that the company will continue to add platforms to the BPA going forward.

Eight software providers were initially named to Carahsoft’s BPA last year and the latest addition brings the number of software publishers on the agreement to 15.

DoD said Tuesday the BPA is part of the Pentagon’s Enterprise Software Initiative and includes information technology asset management platforms, software maintenance support and professional IT services. The ordering period will run through July 13, 2029.
