Chantilly, VA – June 19, 2014
Iron Bow Technologies LLC, an information technology solutions provider, announced today that it has won a multi-year blanket delivery order with the U.S. Department of Commerce for information technology hardware with a focus on network-related products. The five year contract, issued under the National Institutes of Health Electronic Commodities Store III (NIH/ECS III), has an estimated total value of $150 million.
Iron Bow is one of five awardees selected to provide a range of networking equipment from six original equipment manufacturers including long term partners Cisco, HP, Juniper, F5, Dell and Brocade. The blanket delivery order eases the agency’s burden of procurement and can be used by any of the Commerce Department’s 12 operating units.
According to the Department of Commerce, this contract is expected to save up to $25 million in taxpayer dollars over the next five years. Not only does it streamline the procurement process, but saves time by avoiding multiple contracts to perform the same tasks, and delivers the best cost for products.

Iron Bow has strong relationships with top-tier industry partners that enable them to deliver the best value to the Department of Commerce. The company is recognized as a Cisco Gold Certified Partner with the highest distinction for Customer Satisfaction Excellence and providing outstanding customer service. In addition, the company is an HP Gold Partner, F5 Gold Partner, Juniper Elite Portfolio Partner and is Dell Federal Authorized.
