State signs 10-year seat deal

The Office of Foreign Buildings Operations last week became the first State Department group to negotiate a contract under the General Services Administration's Seat Management Program.

The office set a 10-year contract for information technology services with Wang Government Services Inc. of McLean, Va. The $48.9 million contract has a one-year base and nine one-year options, said Tom Crowder, project manager for GSA's Seat Management Program.

Wang said the company will provide services including LAN management, hardware and software management, support and maintenance, training and electronic-commerce services to about 1,100 employees in the Washington area. The State office manages facilities for U.S. diplomatic missions, owning or leasing about 12,000 properties abroad.
