ATF taps EDS for third seat management contract

EDS Corp. has won a $300 million seat management contract to provide services to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives'besting incumbent Unisys Corp.

ATF awarded EDS the seven-year, performance-based deal to run its PC operations under the Defense Information Systems Agency's Encore governmentwide acquisition contract.

EDS will provide hardware, software and technology services needed for ATF employees and task forces agencywide. Initially, the company will support about 8,500 nodes at nearly 260 locations nationwide.

This is the bureau's third seat management contract. Unisys won the previous two deals.

Gartner Inc. of Stamford, Conn., and Acquisition Solutions Inc. of Oakton, Va., assisted ATF in developing and awarding the contract. The bureau used concepts and practices developed from 'Seven Steps of Performance-Based Contracting,' a guide conceived by the Commerce Department and the Office of Federal Procurement Policy, ATF officials said.
