The Marine’s are looking for a few good vendors that want to sell them computers. They will even let you help develop the procurement procedure according to this request for information.
The Marine Corps plans on creating a contract vehicle for procuring desktops, laptops and servers. The plan will include procuring rugged and non-rugged computer in an efficient and cost effective way. The plan is to establish a common set of hardware platforms and the method in which those systems will be procured. Sounds like whoever helps establish the procurement procedure will be selling the Marines some hardware..
Not to be left out of environmental concerns computers must be manufactured and operate in environmentally friendly way. Whoever sells them the computers must also provide an efficient method of returning old and broken equipment.
The Marine Corps will hold an industry day conference to discuss the contract at 9:00 a.m. on April 16. The Marine Corps Systems Command in Quantico, Va., will host the conference at the Jacobs Building, Quantico Center 1, 3850 Fettler Park Drive, Dumfries, Va.
