DITCO to cut fees

The contracting arm of the Defense Information Systems Agency will reduce its fee for services beginning next fiscal year.

On Oct. 1, the Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization will lower its rate from 2 percent to 1.25 percent through fiscal 2006, according to a DISA release today. The reduction comes from better cost control and increased revenues, said Evelyn DePalma, director for procurement and logistics at DISA.

"For 13 years DITCO operated with a 2 percent fee-for-service rate," DePalma said. "The fee reduction to 1.25 percent is a direct result of the efforts of the men and women of DITCO to keep costs low despite increasing workload. The fact that they are able to operate more efficiently and still provide our customers with superior service is proof of their dedication."

DITCO, funded through the Defense Working Capital Fund, provides IT contracting services to DISA and the Defense Department.

DePalma said DITCO would re-evaluate its rate annually to see if further adjustments are needed.
