U.S. Air Force Selects HP as "Best Value Vendor" for Quarterly PC and Laptop Technology Buy


HP today announced that the U.S. Air Force (USAF) has selected it to fulfill desktop and notebook PC needs as part of the USAF’s quarterly IT purchase process.

HP was selected as the “Best Value Vendor” for the desktops and laptops categories by the USAF’s Information Technology Commodity Council, which includes representatives from all of the USAF’s major commands.

To meet the USAF’s personal computing and mobility needs in the United States and around the world, HP will provide its HP Compaq dc5750 Business Desktop PCs (Small Form Factor and Microtower) and its HP Compaq tc4400 Tablet PCs.

“We are proud that the U.S. Air Force continues to count on HP for top performance and value when fulfilling its computing needs,” said Sami Zarzour, vice president, Public Sector Volume Sales, HP. “HP looks forward to building on our longstanding relationship with the service by offering the products, solutions and services it needs to manage its complex IT requirements.”

In October 2004, USAF awarded HP a five-year blanket purchase agreement (BPA) to provide desktops, laptops and servers (DLS) under the provisions of the Air Force PC strategy. That DLS BPA provides HP an opportunity to bid on the Air Force’s quarterly enterprise buys (QEB) for computer systems.

Overall, HP has delivered $100 million worth of products to the USAF through the QEB process since October 2004, including more than 110,000 desktops and 10,000 notebooks.

The HP/USAF contract number is FA8771-05-A-0611. For more information about the USAF’s quarterly IT purchase process, contact Barbara Dobbins, contracting officer, U.S. Air Force at +1 334 416 1185 or via email at or Martin Toland, primary program manager, U.S. Air Force at +1 334 416 4846 or
