IRS inks $100 million PC deal with PlanetGov

Almost four months after signing a $35 million blanket purchasing agreement for new computers, the IRS has awarded another contract to the same company, PlanetGov Inc., to buy more than $100 million worth of additional replacements.

As part of its Workstation Refreshment Program, designed to replace annually a third of the agency's old workstations, the IRS signed a three-year agreement to buy 30,000 Hewlett Packard Evo 510 desktop PCs and monitors and HP Evo N610c and 410c notebooks.

In August, the IRS purchased 12,300 Compaq Evo D500 desktop PCs and monitors and more than 11,000 Compaq Evo N800 notebook PCs from the same PlanetGov and HP team.

In addition to hardware, PlanetGov Inc., based in Chantilly, Va., will also provide the agency with distribution and installation services, asset and warranty management, and development and maintenance of a central online repository for its Workstation Refreshment Program.
