HP bags $548 million order from US Defense

HP Enterprise Services has bagged an order worth up to $548 million from the U.S. Department of Defense’s Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) to provide maintenance and hardware and software support.

As a prime contractor, HP will provide hardware support services as well as software, maintenance and integration services. To support mission activities, DMDC must maintain a high operations pace by adapting to evolving technologies and system capabilities besides the ability to meet changing peace and wartime operational demands.


HP will take care the hardware and software—including servers, PCs, laptops, handhelds, printers, scanners, biometric devices and cameras—that DMDC uses in daily operations. Software to be supported under this agreement includes the Defense Biometric Identification Systems (DBIDS), Real-Time Automated Personnel Identification System (RAPIDS), Noncombatant Tracking/Emergency Tracking Accountability System (NT/ETAS) and other systems mission critical to DMDC.

“For our government clients with complex IT environments, it is critical to have strong foundational hardware and software to provide the vital services its citizens need,” said Marilyn Crouther, senior vice president and general manager, U.S. Public Sector, HP Enterprise Services.
