DLA to consolidate IT operations

DLA to consolidate IT operations

The Defense Logistics Agency is seeking quotations for a plan to turn over its disparate servers and databases to a vendor. The closing date is April 16.

A request for quotations for the Enterprise Data Center initiative, issued March 17, asked vendors to submit proposals for consolidating servers, applications, storage and operations across DLA to reduce costs and better manage IT assets.

The data center contract, to be awarded in July, would run for five years with five one-year options. The initiative would shift DLA's servers and databases from current distributed data centers to a centralized Enterprise Data Center, according to the RFQ.

The benefits of the initiative include a modernized IT infrastructure, standardization of application development through consolidation of test beds, and reduction in IT inventory, DLA said.
