Acquiring telecommunications and information technology (IT) products and services for the military is one of DISA's key roles within the Department of Defense (DOD).
Our procurement experts use a variety of contract vehicles to increase acquisition speed, reduce costs, and ensure the men and women of our armed services have the cutting-edge services and technologies they need to fulfill their missions.
VALUE TO OUR MISSION PARTNERS
- DISA provides Enterprise Acquisition Services (EAS) for purchasing telecommunications and IT products and services from the worldwide commercial sector to meet DOD and authorized non-defense mission partner needs. Services include acquisition planning, procurement, tariff surveillance, cost and price analyses, and contract administration. DISA is the mandated single source for procuring DOD long haul telecommunications requirements.
- DISA also establishes large contract vehicles available to DOD for essential IT services such as engineering, hardware, equipment and maintenance, integration and support, cyber security, computer technology, and Defense Information System Network (DISN) access. Non-DISN telecommunications circuits and systems are ordered on an individual basis and are fully reimbursed by mission partners. DISA also has several Joint Enterprise Licensing Agreements (JELAs) for software licensing and support. The EAS encompasses a variety of support services to meet DOD IT contract requirements and provides contract support to all DISN subscription services.
