The Homeland Security Department’s goal of consolidating procurement vehicles across its panoply of agencies came closer today as the department chose 11 vendors to receive contracts under the First Source procurement for commodity information technology gear.

The 11 companies will compete for First Source task orders that could amount to $3 billion over as long as five years. The contracts run for two years with the potential for three one-year extensions.
The following companies gained First Source contracts, according to the FedBizOpps government procurement portal:
  • All Points Logistics of Titusville, Fla.
  • Computer World Services of Washington.
  • Government Acquisitions of Cincinnati, Ohio.
  • GovPlace of Irvine, Calif.
  • iGov, of McLean, Va.
  • MultimaxArray FirstSource of Greenbelt, Md.
  • NCS Technologies of Manassas, Va.
  • Net Direct Systems of Apex, N.C.
  • EG Solutions of Reston, Va.
  • ST Net-Apptis FirstSource Joint Venture of Chantilly, Va.
  • WildFlower International of Santa Fe, N.M.
The First Source contract winners are set to provide commodity products such as PCs, servers, monitors and the like.

DHS requested proposals from prospective First Source vendors in November 2005 and received them on July 10, 2006, according to Input of Reston, Va.
