U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs selects Dell for $248 million nationwide technology rollout

Round Rock, Texas.-The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has chosen Dell as the exclusive provider of desktop computer systems to support more than 200,000 agency employees, Dell announced today.
Valued at more than $248 million, the agreement will assist the department in meeting the needs of more than 24 million veterans and about 74.5 million individuals eligible for agency services or benefits.
Under terms of the three-year lease agreement, Dell will provide a minimum of 249,000 Dell OptiPlexTM desktop computers with monitors. Additionally, the company will provide the agency with a variety of professional services including deployment, asset management and the option of asset removal at lease-end, helping simplify an otherwise complex information-technology rollout. In all, the nationwide deployment will play a significant role in helping the department serve the needs of current and future veterans.
“This program will help the VA achieve its mission of caring for our nation’s veterans,” said Troy West, vice president, Dell Federal. “As the exclusive PC provider for the department, we look forward to supporting the agency as it meets the needs of veterans now and into the future.”
As part of the agreement, Dell will team with a number of service disabled veteran-owned small businesses to provide deployment services. Combining Dell’s core competencies with these small-business partners will provide a key component of the overall project.
