ESCgov, Inc., a premier provider of enterprise software and utility computing solutions, announced today that it was awarded an Enterprise Software Solutions Blanket Purchase Agreement by the US Department of Homeland Security.  ESCgov will offer a broad spectrum of IBM software solutions across two of the three capability areas competed: Application Infrastructure and Security. 

The BPA was competed under GSA’s Information Technology (IT) Schedule 70, and provides for software licenses, software maintenance and consulting services within the awarded capability areas.

Under this BPA, DHS components may issue orders on a Firm-Fixed Price (FFP), Time & Material (T&M) and Labor Hour (LH) basis for products and services.

“As a long time provider of software and services to DHS, ESCgov is thrilled to have won this important contract”, said Wayne Greenberg, ESCgov Client Executive.  “Our roots run deep with IBM, and we look forward to working closely with our historical and new partners to bring great value to DHS”.

Key features of the contract include:

·        Software licenses and subscription and support (maintenance) for Application Infrastructure and Security products across the broad IBM solution portfolio;

·        Existing licenses and maintenance contracts from various outside vendors can be migrated under the Enterprise Software Solutions BPA;

·        Existing and future maintenance contracts will be co-terminated to one anniversary date;

·        Current license upgrades and transfer of licenses within and between DHS organizations at no additional cost;

·        Opportunity to negotiate additional discounts at the order level; and

      ·        Licenses and maintenance entitlements will be centrally tracked under one license portal.
