Deltek‘s Alex Rossino has outlined his analysis of the U.S. Army‘s spending on the Information Technology Enterprise Solutions 2 – Services vehicle in an effort to help vendors prepare for the upcoming ITES-3S iteration in fiscal year 2015.
“ITES-3S is expected to be even more heavily utilized than its predecessor due to the Army’s desire to push more of its IT acquisition dollars through a smaller number of contract vehicles,” Rossino, a principal research analyst at Deltek, wrote in a piece for GovWin.
In his analysis, Rossino breaks down data on the $3 billion-plus in Army procurements via ITES-2S through May by customer, type of product or service and competitor.
According to Rossino, the program executive office for enterprise information systems has been the top Army customer on ITES-2S at $1.1 billion, followed by the Army Information Technology Agency at $638 million and the communications-electronics command at $263 million.
Meanwhile, the Deltek principal research analyst reports that Army customers spent the most on miscellaneous automatic data processing and telecommunications services at $2.1 billion, followed by maintenance and repair of ADP equipment at $195 million and computers at $179 million.
The analyst also highlights commercial-off-the-shelf equipment and software as preferred implementation tools for Army customers.
