Rock Island Arsenal continues IT support contract with Dell Perot Systems


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Dell Perot Systems
: 08 January, 2010  (Application Story)
Contract covers command, control, communications, computer and information management services which recent Dell acquisition, Perot Systems will supply to Rock Island Arsenal
Dell Perot Systems has announced that its Fairfax based Government Services Business Unit was awarded the Rock Island Arsenal contract – a five-year, $42 million agreement to provide command, control, communications, computer and information management (C4IM) services to the Army arsenal. Recently acquired by Dell Corporation, Perot Systems has been providing services to the Rock Island Arsenal for the past four years, helping the base accomplish a number of leading Army IT initiatives including consolidating the base’s Directorate of Information Management (DOIM) centres into a single DOIM while simultaneously migrating the base’s networks to the Army’s first Area Processing Centre (APC). The successful APC migration was one of the first of its kind in CONUS [the contiguous 48 US states] and created a process blueprint for future installations. The successful migration has also helped the base improve service delivery as well as strengthen security by reducing entry points.

For the new contract, Dell Perot Systems will continue to provide network operations, desktop services, email, information assurance, telephones, and connectivity to long-haul communications.

Lee Carrick, Vice President of Dell Perot Systems’ Government Services Unit: “We’re excited about the Army’s decision to award us with this contract and look forward to continuing to provide the Rock Island Arsenal with the highest quality of service. We’re also proud to have been one of the first teams to help the Army migrate a base to the APC, which gave us a firsthand knowledge of the challenges that arise in migrations and how to avoid or resolve those issues during future migrations.”
