NITAAC-GSS is one of three preferred OMB sources for federal civilian and DoD agencies looking to obtain desktops, laptops, monitors, software and hardware at a competitive price
Many agencies buy and manage their IT in a fragmented and inefficient manner, resulting in reduced buying power, inefficient duplication of contracts, and very little transparency into prices paid. To combat this problem, the Category Management Leadership Council (CMLC) instituted the Laptops and Desktops initiative in an effort to take new steps to improve the acquisition and management of common IT goods and services to drive greater performance, efficiencies and savings.
The National Institutes of Health Information Technology Acquisition and Assessment Center (NITAAC) is pleased to serve as one of three preferred sources for purchasing laptops and desktops for civilian agencies per memo M-16-02 issued on October 16, 2015. See the attached memo for more detailed information.
The NITAAC Difference
NITAAC delivers quality common IT equipment at competitive rates. In fact, federal agencies who use NITAAC realize dramatic savings when purchasing commonly-used IT products. Using NITAAC allows federal agencies to reduce the administrative cost of establishing their own IT contracts and leverage the buying power of civilian agencies for laptops and desktops. The more federal agencies participate, the greater the overall savings. And, agencies get the same low price regardless of the quantities ordered. Through NITAAC Goverment-Wide Strategic Solutions, federal agencies are expected to realize dramatic savings when purchasing commonly used IT products.
