FBI teams up with Dell for "critical mission"

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has teamed up with Dell for its IT supply and support, with the deal being the largest indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity agreement (ID/IQ) made in the FBI’s history.

The deal is between the FBI and Perot Systems Government Services, a subsidiary of Dell Services. This will be one of 46 companies providing services for the FBI, with Dell fulfilling a valuable IT supply and support requirement.

The value was not revealed, but the FBI’s IT Triple S project, authorised by the Department of Justice, has a cap of $30 billion over an eight year period. It’s therefore likely that Dell will bring in a few hundred million dollars over that duration.

Dell has been working with the FBI for over 15 years, providing IT infrastructure and services for “critical missions” within the intelligence and law enforcement community. These provisions include applications services, business consulting, business process services, IT consulting, and managed cloud and virtualisation services.
