Arvada, CO  – September 8, 2010 – CounterTrade Products, Inc. announced today that they have been awarded two multi-million dollar Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs) under the Department of State’s Global Information Technology Modernization Program.  This program aims at supporting the President’s Management Agenda, which focuses on consolidating IT product purchasing methods.  The Department of the State needs highly reliable government contractors who are able to supply modernized technology equipment, with the ultimate goal of increasing Government efficiencies and lowering costs.

After thorough review of all contractor responses, the Department of the State decided on CounterTrade, a small woman owned business with 25 years of experience and 2008:9001 ISO certified procedures. CounterTrade was awarded a BPA for data storage hardware with a ceiling amount of $14 million over four years.  Similarly, the Department of the State awarded an additional contract to CounterTrade for high-end servers with a ceiling amount of $48 million over four years.

These contract awards provide CounterTrade with the opportunity to continue to provide high quality IT equipment to federal clients; We were very confident with our responses, as we were able to provide both competitive pricing and a solid technical proposal substantiated by our past performance, said Joe Boglino, VP of Sales regarding the bidding process.  Conducting federal business is not about ceiling amounts or promises made in responses documents; conducting federal business is about supplying the highest level of quality, both in products and in services, to ensure that our government has all the tools necessary to provide for our country.
