U.S. Department of Treasury Selects EDS, an HP Company, for $30 Million Mobile Workforce Technology Refresh Contract



EDS, an HP company, today announced it has signed a $30 million agreement with the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) to improve the connectivity, collaboration, performance and overall user experience for the agency’s workforce by providing and maintaining end-user computing resources as well as mobility services.

Under the agreement, EDS will provide comprehensive workplace services support, deploy HP desktops, workstations, notebooks, wireless products, portable printers and scanners to help OCC meet the objectives of the Integrated Mobile Employee Technology Refresh and Optimization (I-METRO) program.

EDS’ solution will consolidate the number of desktops and help meet the needs of OCC employees by providing innovative HP mobility solutions tailored to improve productivity, simplify remote access and reduce support costs. The solution also offers nationwide connectivity and availability of the agency’s mission-critical applications 24/7, while supporting compliance with all applicable federal policies and regulations.

OCC charters, regulates and supervises national banks to ensure a safe, sound and competitive banking system that supports both the citizens and the economy of the United States. The contract will enable OCC’s mobile bank examiners to be more productive in regulating and supervising 1,600 national banks and 50 federal branches of foreign banks in the United States, which account for nearly two-thirds of the total assets of all U.S. commercial banks.

“By improving network connectivity and upgrading OCC equipment, bank examiners will be able to increase productivity and complete tasks more efficiently while working in an increasingly complex banking environment,” said Dennis Stolkey, senior vice president of U.S. Public Sector at EDS, an HP company. “Our team combines industry best practice mobile workforce services with HP products to meet the I-METRO objectives.”
