Army council gives stamp of approval to small computer program

The Army Business Initiative Council has said procurement officers should look first at the Army Small Computer Program when buying IT services and hardware costing more than $100,000.

The initiative simplifies and centralizes IT management throughout the Army, said Olga Lawrence, assistant project manager of the program, based at Fort Monmouth, N.J.

Calling for Army purchasers to check the small computer program first is intended to help Army commands save time and money, Lawrence said yesterday at the Program Executive Office, Enterprise Information Systems Industry Day in Falls Church, Va.

Lawrence said her office is working on an implementation plan to show Army leaders how much money they can save by using the ASCP buying vehicle rather than a General Services Administration schedule contract.

ASCP offers IT hardware, software, peripherals, networking and infrastructure support services to the Army, Defense Department, other federal agencies and foreign military sales.
