The U.S. Communities Government Purchasing Alliance has renewed a two-year contract with GTSI Corp. to supply state and local governments and related agencies with a broad range of IT products and services.
The County of Fairfax, Va., which awarded GTSI the original contract, is the organization's lead procurement agency.
U.S. Communities, based in Walnut Creek, Calif., is a nonprofit organization that offers state and local governments the chance to buy computers, software, services and peripheral accessories at discounted rates by pooling their purchasing power.
GTSI of Chantilly, Va., has seen its work on the U.S. Communities Technology Contract grow substantially from $6.6 million in 2003 to $22.7 million in 2004 and to $44.8 million in 2005. The newest contract may bring the company $75 million worth of new orders in 2006, a company spokeswoman said.Ethan Butterfield is a staff writer for
