Dell Marketing LP, Round Rock, Texas, was awarded an estimated $231,170,000 firm-fixed-price blanket purchase agreement (BPA) in accordance with the firm’s General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Supply Schedule contract. This agreement will provide VMware brand-name software licenses, software maintenance and services to the Department of the Navy (DON). The products will meet the following functional capabilities: data center and Cloud infrastructure; networking and security; storage and availability; Cloud management; network functions virtualization; digital workspace; desktop and application virtualization; and training.
Under a $49,730,000 award, Carahsoft Technology Corp. of Reston, Virginia, is continuing to supply, under a blanket purchase agreement, VMware software maintenance and new VMware software licenses to the Navy. This contract modification increases the estimated value of the BPA from $42,970,000 to $92,700,000. The BPA does not obligate funds. However, firm-fixed-price orders will continue to be placed against the BPA using primarily operations and maintenance (Navy) funds. This increase in estimated value is supported by a limited source justification in accordance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation. The BPA is in support of the Department of Navy’s Enterprise Software Licensing initiative.
