Apptis Part of DISA ENCORE II Information Technology Solutions Contract

Apptis, an information technology (IT) and communications services provider to the federal marketplace, has been selected as a partner to provide IT solutions and services for the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) ENCORE II Information Technology Solutions (News - Alert) contract.
The ENCORE II Information Technology Solutions contract, worth $12.225 billion, was awarded by the Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization (DITCO), under the DISA. The contract has been awarded to 26 companies. Apptis is a subcontractor to NETCONN Solutions, one of the 26 awardees.
“DISA ENCORE II is an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contracting vehicle providing network-centric solutions, in the form of hardware, software and licenses that are incidental to the implementation of the IT solution,” said Apptis.
The DISA contract covers network engineering, protection, analysis and support of components and systems in operational environments of combatant commands and their subordinate components, Department of Defense (DoD), Military Services and other agencies of the Federal government.
As a subcontractor to NETCONN Solutions, Apptis’ main project includes transition from legacy systems to a new infrastructure in accordance with the network-centric enterprise services (NCES) program.
“As the government continues to enhance its IT infrastructure, DISA continues to lead the way,” said Bert Notini, chairman and CEO of Apptis. “We are honored to do our part as a trusted partner to provide the services and solutions required to achieve information superiority and seamless communication capabilities across borders.”
“We’re thrilled to be selected as a partner to work on the ENCORE II Information Technology Solutions initiative,” said Michael Carroll, senior vice president of Global Systems Division at Apptis. “We know that every time we work with DISA, we’ll be involved with the most advanced IT systems in highly-sensitive environments around the globe.”
“The options for services available to government agencies are widespread, and so we recognize it’s a great privilege to provide the support that ensures the technology is running efficiently, effectively and as safely as possible,” added Carroll.
