Technology company DLT Solutions has secured a new contract, valued at more than $379m, for the provision of Oracle software and related services to the US Navy and US Marine Corps (USMC).

Technology company DLT Solutions has secured a new contract, valued at more than $379m, for the provision of Oracle software and related services to the US Navy and US Marine Corps (USMC).

The indefinite delivery / indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract has been awarded for a period of five years with an Unlimited License Agreement (ULA) and Catalog.

The latest deal represents the Department of Navy’s (DON) mandated source of supply for the procurement of all Oracle software licences, maintenance and technical support services, in addition to the products acquired via government purchase cards.

"The new contract allows the DON customers to acquire the Oracle software systems required for their programmes in a pre-negotiated environment with pre-established low prices."

DLT Solutions senior vice-president Keith Barnes said: “DLT is honoured to have been selected by the US DON to continue supporting the DON’s Oracle requirements.

“DLT has leveraged our unique Enterprise Agreement Platform (EAP) capability, while working closely with the DON’s Enterprise Software Licensing (ESL) Program Office over the past five years to make sure DON requirements are maintained with accurate information and with stringent accountability, ensuring no contract acquisition leakage.”

The agreement will see DLT Solutions continue to provide Oracle software licences, maintenance and technical support services, which are key to supporting warfighters’ operations.

The new contract allows the DON customers to acquire the Oracle software systems required for their programmes in a pre-negotiated environment with pre-established low prices.

It will also enable the DON entities to purchase Oracle services that provide unlimited data-sharing for all authorised users.

DLT Solutions previously entered a $133.4m blanket purchase agreement (BPA) with the US department in February last year for the delivery of Red Hat software and associated services.
