The Department of Defense Dependents Schools-Europe has awarded three blanket purchase agreements potentially worth $12.7 million to GTSI, a government information technology solutions provider, the company announced today.
Under terms of the BPAs, GTSI will deliver and install more than 8,000 laptop, tablet and desktop computers in the next five years to more than 98 DODDS-Europe schools in Europe and the Middle East. In addition to the hardware and software, GTSI will also provide a wide range of services, including asset tagging and imaging, to DOD’s Educational Activity program in the United States.
GTSI said it has partnered with Gateway and Prism Point Technologies (PPT) to fulfill the needs of DODDS-Europe students, faculty members and school officials.
Gateway is supplying the laptop, tablet and desktop computers. GTSI recently teamed with the company to provide computing solutions to cadets at the U.S. Air Force Academy.
PPT, a veteran-owned small business, has provided round-the-clock on-site technical IT support services in a subcontractor role to GTSI for many years, the integrator said in the announcement.
