Chantilly, VA – July 07, 2011
Iron Bow Technologies, an information technology solutions provider, has been awarded a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) contract by the Social Security Administration (SSA). The contract is valued at $120 million with a period of performance of two years and nine months. Iron Bow will provide Cisco network infrastructure and related support services to the SSA.
The contract with Iron Bow will effectively save the SSA millions of dollars by comparison to their previous BPA by delivering cutting-edge technologies which operate faster and with greater energy efficiency. This is especially important for federal agencies today, given IT budget sensitivities and the federal government looking for cost-cutting measures.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to work with the Social Security Administration to provide a more robust network infrastructure, essential to the timely delivery of critical services,” said Rene LaVigne, President and CEO of Iron Bow Technologies. “Our contract with the SSA will bring best-in-class network solutions to the agency designed to decrease recurring costs, increase energy efficiency and enable advanced capabilities.”
The BPA will not only be providing a refresh of older hardware, but also an opportunity for the SSA to reconfigure and optimize their network infrastructure. The end result will be a network that better enables information sharing and is prepared for the future adoption of advanced collaboration technologies. These solutions are currently being adopted across the federal government to increase communication, facilitate telework initiatives and cut operational expenses.
