Micron exec downplays pending sale

Last month's announcement of the pending sale of Micron Government Computer Systems Inc. will not affect any government PC contracts or service arrangements, said Harry B. Heisler, the company's general manager.

The undisclosed buyer, a large U.S. information technology investment company that does not now operate a PC business, could sign the deal by the end of next month, Heisler said.

Micron Electronics Inc. of Nampa, Idaho, is divesting its government systems and PC manufacturing units to concentrate on Web hosting through a separate merger that does not involve federal business.

Micron's government unit holds a General Services Administration IT Schedule contract and about a dozen blanket purchasing agreements used by the Air Force, the Marine Corps, the IRS, the FBI and other agencies.

'The buyer looks at those contracts as an asset,' Heisler said. 'The government team will be 100 percent intact' with the same engineers, and it will continue the Micron Millennia and ClientPro PC brands and the Transport notebook PC brand.
