Chantilly, VA – May 02, 2011
Iron Bow Technologies announced today that it has been awarded the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) SAVES (Sourcing for the Acquisition of Various Equipment and Supplies) contract to provide network, storage and server technologies and associated services. This five year award is valued at $425 million, and will be the company’s first agency-wide IDIQ with the DOT.
Established in 2006, SAVES contracts are a group of Department of Transportation (DOT) agency-wide strategic sourcing contracts managed by the FAA. This award — the network, storage and server award — is one of five IT contracts let under the program intended to drive standardized technology, consolidate buying activities and facilitate IT investments.
SAVES contracts are mandatory use contracts for the FAA’s IT community, and may optionally be used by the FAA’s National Airspace System (NAS) community and the DOT.
“This is our first opportunity to serve the FAA on a prime contract, and we are extremely proud to support an organization that has achieved such unprecedented operational excellence in safety and innovation.” said Rene LaVigne, President and Chief Executive Officer for Iron Bow. “Not only are we well equipped to provide best-in-class solutions, but we share many of the same business values which we think creates a great foundation for a long-term partnership.”
A key feature of the contract allows for the purchase of complete hardware and software technology solutions to enable the full life-cycle management of the FAA’s network and storage assets through a single point of contact. As a leading solutions provider with strong professional services capabilities, Iron Bow is well suited to provide this combination, resulting in the “best overall value” to the government.
