CDW-G Awarded Statewide Texas and Virginia Contracts

CDW-G Awarded Statewide Texas and Virginia ContractsVERNON HILLS, Ill. – November 29, 2010 – CDW Government (CDW-G), a leading provider of technology solutions to government, education and healthcare customers, today announced two statewide contract wins: a Cisco telecommunications networking contract with the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) and a server contract with the Virginia Information Technologies Agency (VITA). The awards illustrate CDW-G’s ability to provide industry-best products and services to state and local governments and educational institutions.

Texas Department of Information Resources
Under its contract with the Texas DIR, CDW-G will provide Cisco data communication and telecommunications networking equipment and services to Texas state and local agencies, K-12 schools and colleges and universities. With the contract, Texas agencies will have access to more than 1,000 networking, memory, data storage and power protection products and related services. The contract is renewable annually until 2014.

Virginia Information Technologies Agency
Under its two-year contract with the Commonwealth of Virginia, CDW-G will provide HP tower, rack and blade servers; server-related peripherals; and system software and related services to Virginia state and local agencies, K-12 schools and colleges and universities. CDW-G will also provide associated services, including custom configuration, imaging and asset tagging.

“Employee productivity is a critical consideration as states grapple with resource constraints,” said David Hutchins, director of state and local government sales for CDW-G. “With these contracts, Texas and Virginia agencies and schools can take advantage of technologies that save staff time and improve delivery of IT services to staff and citizens. Cisco’s broad portfolio of integrated products and services outfits organizations with the tools they need to facilitate secure, reliable and fast communications – any time and anywhere. HP’s servers enable agencies to fulfill commitments to create environmentally friendly workplaces by centralizing computing resources and conserving energy via solutions such as virtualization.
