Five-year contract provides a fast, efficient path for procuring unified communication and collaboration solutions across the DoD

Herndon, VA – (October 22, 2013)DLT Solutions, a leading value-added reseller in government information technology (IT) hardware, software and services, announced today that it was recently awarded a contract by the U.S. Army Contracting Command to provide commercial cloud services to the Department of Defense (DoD) through an Enterprise Software Initiative Blanket Purchase Agreement (ESI BPA) under the existing GSA Email-as-a-Service (EaaS) BPA. This new contract complements the existing GSA EaaS BPA and ensures compliance with DoD security requirements. 

The contract has a one-year base period with four one-year options and will allow the DoD to easily and cost-effectively procure the Google Apps for Government Email-as-a-Service solution.  Google Apps for Government is an innovative suite of modern unified communications and collaboration tools including secure and reliable workplace applications for email, chat, calendar, documents, spreadsheets, presentations, forms, video sharing and more. 

"As a valued Google partner, we are pleased to have been selected for this additional ESI BPA contract," said Duane Thorpe, manager of cloud solutions at DLT Solutions.  "This contract allows DLT Solutions to continue to provide secure, cloud-based email solutions to the federal government and meet the tight security controls required by the DoD."

DLT Solutions was originally selected for the GSA EaaS BPA in September 2012 based on its experience and ability to deliver Google Apps for Government and migration services.  EaaS enables agencies to use email applications running on a third-party infrastructure, accessible through a thin client interface such as a web browser.  EaaS also provides mobile workforces with access to email anywhere, faster updates for enhanced functionality and security, as well as the ability to manage licenses and deployment more efficiently.  For more information visit www.dlt.com/eaas.
