The EAGLE II program was created to establish the next generation of the EAGLE suite of
indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contracts and is designed to offer a broad range of services, solutions and contract types to fulfill DHS IT needs. As IT support services represent a significant portion of the DHS technology budget, this program will enable DHS business and program offices to accomplish key mission objectives.
The IDIQ contract has a five-year base period and one two-year option period. Under the IDIQ, HP will compete for task orders in the Unrestricted Track of Functional Category 1 (FC1), Service Delivery, intended to provide DHS components with System Design, Development, Implementation and Integration; Software Design and Development; and Operations and Maintenance services.
HP brings extensive commercial and government IT experience to the contract and will build on the mission-critical IT services delivered under DHS EAGLE, including operation of Enterprise Data Center 2, private cloud offerings, and applications modernization and hosting for several DHS components.
"It is imperative that DHS components gain access to the most efficient and effective IT systems and services to support their mission objectives," said Marilyn Crouther, senior vice president and general manager, U.S. Public Sector, HP Enterprise Services. "Utilizing our experience and lessons learned from the original EAGLE contract, we will provide valuable and successful solutions to DHS and its components starting on day one."
