HERNDON, Va. -- CDW Government, Inc. (CDW-G), a wholly owned subsidiary of CDW Corporation [NASDAQ:CDWC] and leading source of Information Technology (IT) solutions to governments and educators, today announced that it is open for orders on the Army Desktop and Mobile Computing-2 (ADMC-2) contract. The Army estimates the value of the indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract at $5 billion over a three-year base period with three two-year options and a one-year option, for a total of 10 years if all options are exercised.
The Army Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems awarded the contract to three large enterprises and six small businesses in three modules: Desktop and Portable Systems, Ruggedized Devices, and Document Processors/Printers and Peripherals/Accessories. CDW-G was the only large business named to all three modules of the contract. Under the contract, CDW-G will support the Army's requirements for commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware, software, printers, peripherals and accessories. In addition to providing up-to-date and industry-best products, CDW-G will provide support services including asset tagging, system configuration and integration, custom imaging, installation and asset disposal. Other U.S. military departments and agencies, as well as Federal civilian agencies, can also take advantage of the economies of scale and value-added services offered by CDW-G by ordering on the ADMC-2 vehicle.
"CDW-G is pleased to continue its support for the U.S. Army CIO/G-6 initiative to utilize IT as a strategic enabler in the military's effort to deliver a net-centric information enterprise that enables warfighter superiority," said Andy Lausch, director of federal sales for CDW-G. "ADMC-2 will allow any organization within the U.S. Army to secure leading technology solutions to meet their needs, right away - in the United States and around the world."
