"Replacement grade"

The State Department has awarded three contracts, worth a total of more than $13 million, to CDW Government for desktop computers, LCD displays and a variety of networking and storage components.

The contracts are part of State's Global Information Technology Modernization initiative, which began in 2004. The initiative requires regular life cycle computer upgrades to guarantee that both classified and unclassified systems stay up to date.

The contracts call for Lenovo to supply the desktop computers. Lenovo was created in 2005 when its parent company, The Lenovo Group, acquired IBM's personal computing division. The Lenovo Group is based in China, but Lenovo is headquartered in Purchase, N.Y.

Under the three contracts, CDW-G will provide more than 15,000 Lenovo ThinkCentre M51 desktops, nearly 1,000 Lenovo ThinkCentre M51 mini-towers integrated with Gigabit Ethernet communications and high-performance removable hard drives, and large-format LCD displays.
