Arvada, CO: CounterTrade Products, Inc. (CounterTrade) a value-add IT equipment reseller in Arvada, CO, announced today that it has been awarded the National Institutes of Health Information Technology Acquisition and Assessment Center’s (NITAAC) Chief Information Officer – Commodities and Solutions (CIO-CS) Government-wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC). The CIO-CS contract, which provides IT commodities and solutions to agencies throughout the Federal government, is the successor to NIH’s Electronic Commodities Store (ECS) III contract and spans 10 years with potential funds totaling $20 billion.

These IT solutions include health and biomedical-related IT commodities to meet scientific, health, administrative, operational, managerial, and information management requirements. The contract also contains general IT commodities partly because medical systems are increasingly integrated within a broader IT architecture, requiring a systems approach to their implementation and a sound infrastructure for their operation.

“We are thrilled to continue our support with NITAAC,” said Joe Boglino, CounterTrade Vice President of Sales. “This contract will allow us to continue to offer cutting edge IT products and services in support of NIH’s mission.” CounterTrade has provided IT products and services to NIH for over 13 years through multiple contracts including ECS III and SEWP IV.

The contract has been awarded to 65 vendors, seven of which are original equipment manufacturers and 58 that are value added resellers. The contract is set to launch May of 2015.
