ROUND ROCK, Texas, 8 Jan. 2010. Dell Perot Systems' Fairfax, Va.-based Government Services Business Unit won a five-year, $42 million Rock Island Arsenal contract to provide command, control, communications, computer, and information management (C4IM) services to the Army arsenal.
Acquired by Dell Corp., Perot Systems has been providing services to the Rock Island Arsenal for the past four years, helping the base accomplish a number of leading Army IT initiatives including consolidating the base's Directorate of Information Management (DOIM) centers into a single DOIM while simultaneously migrating the base's networks to the Army's first Area Processing Center (APC). The successful APC migration was one of the first of its kind in CONUS [the contiguous 48 U.S. states] and created a process blueprint for future installations. The successful migration has also helped the base improve service delivery as well as strengthen security by reducing entry points.
For the new contract, Dell Perot Systems will continue to provide network operations, desktop services, email, information assurance, telephones, and connectivity to long-haul communications.
