Program Scope

Established in November 2012, ITS is one of the fastest growing programs within Huntsville Center. In fiscal year 2013, the program exceeded $113 million in total obligations consisting of 173 requirements; in FY14 total obligations exceeded $300 million with 300 requirements. 

The ITS Program offers IT acquisition services in three primary areas: technical services, software and hardware commodities. 
Technical Services — Government customers may require contractor support in order to fulfill obligations on a short- or long-term basis or use contractors to provide helpdesk manpower, business analysis, research and development, and other duties which require capabilities that the government may choose to acquire through contractor support.
Software — Software and hardware both make up usable computing systems, but software exists as ideas and concepts. Software is required by customers to fulfill obligations, complete scientific research, support patient monitoring, model data and many other uses. Many times customers need software updates or renewals which can represent one-time buys or reoccurring renewals to meet their ever changing software requirements.  
Hardware — This category includes the physical systems required to support electronic technology and software or that provide the conduits necessary to transmit that technology from one place to another. It is the tools, machinery and other durable equipment which customers require for all electronic communications such as laptops, wireless phones, network routers, servers, mainframe computing systems and many other physical forms of technology.

Best Practices
ITS solutions may be developed using the Army Computer Hardware Enterprise Software and Solutions (CHESS) contract vehicle, Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs), Multiple Award Task Order Contracts, GSA Schedules or single award or agency-specific contracts. This suite of solutions provides customers access to thousands of commercial partners and unlimited variety in information technology solutions. Additionally, the ITS team provides integrated services that combine services, software and hardware into a single deliverable.

Additional Services
The ITS Program can also provide the following additional services:
  • Contract oversight and administration to include scope reviews, modifications, etc.
  • Develop and execute scope, schedules and budgets (from task orders to multiple award task order contracts)
