U.S. Air Force Selects HP as "Best Value Vendor" for Quarterly PC and Laptop Technology Buy

HP today announced that the U.S. Air Force (USAF) has selected it to fulfill desktop and notebook PC needs as part of the USAF’s quarterly IT purchase process.

HP was selected as the "Best Value Vendor" for the desktops and laptops categories by the USAF’s Information Technology Commodity Council, which includes representatives from all of the USAF’s major commands.

“We are proud that the U.S. Air Force continues to count on HP for top performance and value when fulfilling its computing needs,” said Sami Zarzour, vice president, Public Sector Volume Sales, HP. “HP looks forward to building on our longstanding relationship with the service by offering the products, solutions and services it needs to manage its complex IT requirements.”

In October 2004, USAF awarded HP a five-year blanket purchase agreement (BPA) to provide desktops, laptops and servers (DLS) under the provisions of the Air Force PC strategy. That DLS BPA provides HP an opportunity to bid on the Air Force’s quarterly enterprise buys (QEB) for computer systems.

Overall, HP has delivered $100 million worth of products to the USAF through the QEB process since October 2004, including more than 110,000 desktops and 10,000 notebooks.
