Yorktel Joins $20Bn NASA Contract Vehicle

NASA has awarded Yorktel a contract vehicle for enterprise procurement.

The vehicle is a five-year contract with a five-year option period, and each contract holder may do up to $20 billion in business with the space agency. Last year alone, the U.S. government procured over $2.4 billion in goods and services via the vehicle.

“We are delighted to now hold such a major contract vehicle through which to deliver our solutions throughout the federal government,” said Yorktel executive vice president of sales, Greg Douglas. “This contract is a highly strategic accomplishment for Yorktel, and we are honored to continue working with and empowering the U.S. federal government with state-of-the-art video collaboration systems, networks, services and related information technology.”

For 30 years, Yorktel has empowered federal agencies with myriad levels of secure, and non-secure video communications and collaboration, integration, professional services, telepresence, and staffing solutions. The company, which recently secured ISO 27001 Certification, boasts a portfolio utilized by agencies including DOE, DOED, SSA, VA, USDA, DOJ, and HHS, as well as various segments of America’s Armed Forces.

Yorktel’s contract will have a 10-year effective ordering period, including: a five-year base period from May 1, 2015 to April 30, 2020; and one five-year option to extend the period of performance through April 30, 2025. The contract, which is open to all Federal agencies and their contractors, may be used to procure up to $20 billion of information technology products and product-based services.

“We are especially pleased to hold a contract in the small business category,” added Douglas. “The federal government is very strong in doing business with small businesses. According to NASA, 50 percent of SEWP IV task awards went to small businesses.
