EPA Approves $1 Billion Contract To 7 Firms For 7 Years

The Environmental Protection Agency awarded almost a billion dollar contract to seven companies to support its technology infrastructure. The agency announced Sept. 16 that it awarded a blanket purchase agreement worth $955 million over seven years to:

• CGI Federal
• Electronic Consulting Services
• Lockheed Martin
• Raytheon
• SCI Consulting Services

Under the ITS-EPA II program, each vendor now will compete for task orders to provide EPA a variety of services, including help desk, server and storage management, support and applications for agencywide shared services such as file and print, e-mail and other directory services, and high performance computing. In all, EPA wanted vendors to provide at least nine of the 15 services under the contract.

EPA made the award through the General Services Administration's Schedule 70 vehicle. (EPA, Federal News Radio)
