The U.S. Army has asked industry to submit proposals for a potential 10-year, $10 billion contract vehicle to provide commercial information technology equipment and services in support of the service’s enterprise infrastructure and infostructure goals.
The Information Technology Enterprise Solutions-4 Hardware contract will have a base term of five years and one five-year option and the service intends to make at least 17 awards with up to seven set aside for small businesses, according to a request for proposals posted Wednesday.
The vendors should provide all of the IT equipment listed in seven catalogs: servers; workstations, thin clients, desktops and notebooks; storage systems; networking equipment; imaging equipment; cables, connectors and accessories; and video equipment products.
The ITES-4H vehicle also includes non-catalog items such as software, biometric devices and digital senders and elated incidental services including physical site analysis, system configuration and integration, installation and relocation and high availability configuration.
Proposals are due Sept. 24.
Army Contracting Command issued a request for information on the ITES-4H program in January 2020.
