DHS awards HP IT support contract
HP has been picked as one of 15 prime contractor to deliver IT support services under the Department of Homeland Security Enterprise Acquisition Gateway for Leading Edge Solutions II contract, also known as EAGLE II.
The indefinite delivery indefinite quantity contract has a five-year base period and one two-year option period. Under the contract, HP will compete for task orders in the Unrestricted Track of Functional Category 1, Service Delivery, meant to provide DHS components with system design, development, implementation and integration; software design and development; and operations and maintenance services.
