Notable updates for GSS version 9:

Due to industry manufacturing trends, we’ve upgraded the specifications of all items (except the tablet) to increase hard drives to a minimum of 512 GB SSD. We’ve upgraded the operating system minimum to Windows 11 Pro. Finally, we’ve upgraded a few salient characteristics of the computer processing unit, such as defining cores and threads.

GSS - NITAAC Difference

The NITAAC difference

The Federal Government spends over $50 billion a year on hardware, telecommunications, information technology (IT) security and IT professional services through tens of thousands of contracts, task orders and delivery orders.

The Category Management Leadership Council (CMLC) has taken steps to improve the acquisition and management of common IT goods and services to drive greater performance, efficiencies and savings, starting with laptops and desktops — eventually encompassing other areas such as cloud services and cybersecurity.

NITAAC is pleased to serve as one of three Best in Class sources for purchasing laptops and desktops for federal agencies per memo M-16-02 issued on October 16, 2015. See the OMB Category Management policy memo and FAQs for more detailed information.

NITAAC delivers quality IT equipment at competitive rates. In fact, federal agencies who use NITAAC realize dramatic savings when purchasing Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) IT products. Using NITAAC allows federal agencies to reduce the administrative cost of establishing their own IT contracts and leverage the buying power of civilian agencies for laptops and desktops. The more federal agencies participate, the greater the overall savings. Agencies get the same low price regardless of the quantities ordered. Through NITAAC Government-Wide Strategic Solutions, federal agencies can or will realize dramatic savings when purchasing COTS IT products.

NITAAC is constantly exploring ways to help agencies eliminate redundancies, increase efficiencies and deliver more value and savings from our Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs).
