Pennsylvania renews deal for Dell PC support

If you work for the state of Pennsylvania, chances are you use a computer from Dell Inc. For at least the next 12 months, the computer giant will continue to supply the Keystone State with computer hardware.

Dell signed a one-year contract with Pennsylvania worth up to $23 million to supply desktops, notebooks, monitors and related services. The contract is expected to save the state $8.2 million, the company said.

The state first contracted with Dell in 2004 to supply computer products and services, and has seen more than $38.2 million in annual savings in computer costs as compared to before 2004.

Dell offers volume pricing to Pennsylvania state agencies, state-affiliated organizations and other groups that spend public funds to purchase technology products and services. The company also provides services, including lifecycle management for technology assets.
