VA awards record contract to service-disabled, vet-owned business

The Veterans Affairs Department awarded MicroTech LLC of Vienna, Va., a contract worth up to $365 million for Microsoft products and services over six years. The contract is valued at $56 million for the first year with five one-year options.

The award is the largest single contract that the federal government has awarded to a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business, the company said.

The contract provides VA with an enterprise license for a broad range of Microsoft business software to be used on the department's 250,000 workstations and 9,000 Microsoft Windows-based servers. It also includes Microsoft support services. VA awarded its two previous Microsoft enterprise agreements to large business resellers.
