Phase2 Technology Teams With Aquilent on CIO-SP3 Contracting Vehicle -- Phase2 Technology's Digital Government Solutions Now Available Through Ten-Year Technology-Focused GWAC With $20B Ceiling

ALEXANDRIA, VA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/06/12 -- Phase2 Technology, a global leader in web design and development, has announced that it is part of the Aquilent team (http://www.aquilent.com/about/cio-sp3) which was selected as one of the awardees for the Chief Information Officers -- Solutions and Partners 3 (CIO-SP3) government-wide acquisition contract (GWAC). Aquilent (http://www.aquilent.com) is a leading provider of Web and Cloud solutions shaping the next generation of technology for the federal government.

The CIO-SP3 contract is a ten-year, multi-award indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with a $20B ceiling. It is administered by the National Institutes of Health Information Technology Acquisition and Assessment Center (NITAAC). The CIO-SP3 contract is available to any federal agency -- both Civilian and Department of Defense -- requiring a broad range of IT services and solutions. CIO-SP3 is also available to organizations that receive funding from Congress (e.g., Smithsonian Institution).

Jeff Walpole -- Phase2's CEO -- added that "two of our continued goals for our government practice include making it easier for our customers to engage us contractually, and working with world class teaming partners. Joining Aquilent on this CIO-SP3 vehicle is a big step forward for both of those goals. Phase2 and Aquilent were both cited recently in the Federal Computer Weekly's '12 Hot Companies to Watch' (http://bit.ly/SxAvTp), so we're delighted to be offering our services together on CIO-SP3."
