The Defense Information Systems Agency has awarded Iron Bow Technologies a potential five-year, $743 million contract to provide software support services to the Department of Defense’s Fourth Estate agencies.
The 4th Estate Cisco Software Enterprise Agreement has three support areas and the first one is the Global Enterprise Modernization Software and Support package, DISA said Tuesday.
Under this package, the vendor will provide Cisco Smart Net Total Care and software support services, limited engineering support, service provider network architecture and Cisco software subscription products such as Advantage for Route, Digital Network Architecture, Wireless and Switch.
The second support area encompasses software subscriptions backing an email defense capability, security, voice and conference and data center bundles.
The third area calls for the vendor to provide engineering support, including Cisco original equipment manufacturer networking consulting engineers to help design, deploy and support Cisco technologies used in 4th Estate environments.
The agreement’s performance period kicked off on June 21 and will run through June 20, 2027.
DISA also announced that DOD’s Enterprise Software Initiative has come up with a catalog that allows 4th Estate agencies to buy through NASA’s Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement contract Cisco hardware, software and related services that are not covered by the agreement.
