Softchoice Awarded Major Contract Under NASA SEWP IV Program
Softchoice Corporation, a leading North American provider of technology products and services, is proud to announce it has been awarded a contract under the NASA Solutions for Enterprise-wide Procurement (SEWP) IV Government-Wide Acquisition Contract. The contract for Computer Security Systems and Tools, awarded to five qualifying companies, extends for a period of seven years and has an estimated value of up to $5.6 billion. The NASA SEWP IV program includes a total of 37 contracts.
“Being named a SEWP contractor is a major achievement for Softchoice and a direct reflection of the skill and experience our U.S. Federal Government team has demonstrated in fostering loyal, long-term customer relationships through our high touch customer service model,” said David MacDonald, President and CEO of Softchoice Corp. “We are delighted at the prospect of extending our unique brand of local customer service to new customers in the federal government space and look forward to realizing the substantial growth opportunities this contract will provide.”
The SEWP Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts are available for ordering by all NASA centers, all federal agencies and their contractors. The principal purpose of the SEWP IV contracts is to provide customers with state-of-the-art computer technologies, high-end scientific and engineering processing capabilities, network equipment and peripherals.
“In awarding Softchoice this contract, NASA has expanded our role with the federal government significantly,” said Linda Hart, Softchoice’s U.S. Federal District Manager. “We welcome the chance to work with NASA by providing great technology, dedicated people and trusted IT purchasing advice.”
Softchoice has enjoyed strong growth in the U.S. public sector, particularly since it acquired Beyond.com’s Government Systems Group in August of 2002. The addition of the NASA SEWP IV Government-Wide Contract significantly enhances Softchoice’s contract portfolio, giving Softchoice the opportunity to build on an existing U.S. federal government customer-base that includes the Treasury Department, the U.S. Army, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Justice.
