HP Selected by San Diego County for Information Technology Services Contract

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- HP Enterprise Services today announced the County of San Diego, California, has chosen HP to manage the $700 million Information Technology Outsourcing contract to strengthen the county’s technical stability, reduce IT spend and introduce innovative technologies to better serve residents and employees.

In support of the county’s mission to use sustainable IT efficiently, effectively and strategically, HP will further streamline processes, consolidate operations, modernize technology and improve consistency and performance across the organization.

Under the terms of the contract, HP will be the prime contractor, responsible for administering information technology and telecommunications services including data center hosting, service desk, desktop, network, applications and cross-functional services. As a result, the county will gain agility and become an information gateway providing improved access to citizen-centric services.

In addition to delivering innovative solutions that address diverse community needs and economic changes, HP will support the county’s workforce with advanced connectivity solutions. An increasing number of county employees will gain mobility access to collaborate and share data whether in the office, on the road or in the field under the county’s eGovernment and Green IT initiatives.

HP has been a valued service provider to the county for more than 20 years and is very familiar with the IT needs of the County of San Diego and its citizens.

“Local governments work hard to provide taxpayers with timely and convenient delivery of government services while being faced with significant pressures from aging technology,” said Dennis Stolkey, senior vice president and general manager, U.S. Public Sector, HP Enterprise Services. “Through close collaboration with the County of San Diego, HP will provide best-in-class IT services to enhance citizen experience with their agencies, increase transparency and improve business process accuracy and productivity.”
