Commerce awards purchase agreement to DLT for Red Hat services

DLT Solutions Inc. won a three-year, $8 million Commerce Department blanket purchase agreement to provide Red Hat software and services, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux software, to the department, said officials from the Herndon, Va.-based company.

Commerce has used Linux since the mid-1990s. 'Establishing this agreement will help the Department of Commerce leverage economies of scale for Linux across all the bureaus,' said Rita Casazza, CIO liaison and chairwoman of the department's consolidated infrastructure team.

Under the deal, all of the department's 15 agencies'including the Census Bureau, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Patent and Trademark Office and the National Institute of Standards and Technology'can take advantage of the BPA to purchase Red Hat software and support from DLT Solutions.

The BPA is for the purchase, delivery and support of Red Hat Enterprise Linux products, Red Hat Network, Red Hat Global File System, consulting and other Red Hat products and services.
