Herndon, VA — (July 29, 2014) — DLT Solutions, a leading value-added reseller in government information technology (IT) software and services, today announced that it was awarded a contract through the U.S. Communities Government Purchasing Alliance to provide simplified procurement and competitive pricing for Oracle technology solutions. U.S. Communities has more than 55,000 participating agencies and presents a procurement resource for local and state government agencies, school districts (K-12), higher education and non-profit organizations.
The County of Maricopa, Arizona served as the lead public agency and awarded DLT Solutions the three-year contract, which also includes two additional one-year renewal options. “DLT Solutions was selected in a competitive solicitation process based on their proposal, offering a great value for public agencies to solve IT objectives,” said James Foley, deputy chief procurement officer for Maricopa County, AZ. “We are excited that Maricopa County is able to provide the contract vehicle for this powerful offering nationwide.”
With more than 20 years of Oracle experience in the public sector, DLT Solutions is dedicated to solving IT challenges by providing customers with licensing expertise and best-fit solutions across the Oracle “Red Stack”. This is the first time that U.S. Communities has offered Oracle products and services through its cooperative contract, but will leverage DLT Solutions’ certifications and specializations to deliver database, engineered systems, applications and implementation services to participating agencies.
“This is a huge, strategic win for DLT; one that provides state, local and education (SLED) customers with an excellent avenue to procure Oracle products and services easily and efficiently,” explained Ken Grimsley, senior vice president of Oracle sales at DLT Solutions. “We are always looking for opportunities and partnerships that provide our SLED customers with streamlined procurement and competitive pricing. Through this contract, participating public sector agencies will have simplified access to leading Oracle technology solutions and services that will help them achieve their strategic objectives.”
“We value our long-standing partnership with DLT Solutions and are excited to have them represent us on this major state and local contract,” said Dennis Morgan, vice president of Oracle Corporation Public Sector Channels. “Serving the SLED market is a priority to Oracle and DLT Solutions has shown their dedication and commitment to delivering Oracle solutions to the public sector.”
