HP Wins NASA Contract Worth up to $5.6 Billion

PALO ALTO, Calif., May 23, 2007 – HP has been awarded a seven-year contract worth up to $5.6 billion by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to provide a wide range of technology as needed by U.S. federal government agencies.

HP products to be provided under the indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract, called the NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) IV Class 5, include desktops, workstations and blade PCs with Linux and Unix capabilities, servers and printers, among other offerings.

The entire federal government and its authorized prime contractors can purchase HP technology through SEWP IV. In addition, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has made NASA SEWP IV its mandatory contract for the acquisition of technology.

“As the federal government looks to maximize investments, reduce costs and increase efficiencies, it needs a technology partner that delivers products and complete solutions that operate seamlessly in complex IT environments,” said Jack Novia, managing director and senior vice president, Technology Solutions Group – Americas, HP. “With this NASA SEWP IV contract, HP is pleased to extend our partnership with federal government agencies and help them accomplish their mission goals.”

HP has delivered more than $620 million worth of products and services to federal government agencies from 1992-2007 through the previous NASA SEWP II and SEWP III contracts.

The NASA SEWP IV Government-wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) provides the latest in information technology solutions for all federal agencies. SEWP IV offers:

•  low prices – guaranteed at or below U.S. General Services Administration schedule prices;
•  the lowest surcharge (0.6 percent), capped at $18,000 for orders more than $3 million;
•  an easy and fast ordering procedure with personalized customer support and order tracking.

Through SEWP IV, agencies can find a fit for their needs at the best value by choosing the right solutions offered directly by leading hardware and software manufacturers and experienced government integrators.
