Lexmark Wins Contract to Provide Laser Printers, MFPs to FAA
The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has awarded a contract to Lexmark International, Inc., to provide monochrome and color laser printers and multifunction products (MFPs) to the FAA’s more than 800 offices, serving more than 45,000 employees.
The contract ceiling is $60 million if all renewal options are exercised.
The contract, awarded as part of an FAA strategic sourcing initiative, covers desktop and workgroup high-volume laser printers and multifunctional devices, device accessories, and maintenance options.
The Office of Financial Controls, with support from the FAA’s Chief Financial Officer and the FAA Acquisition Executive, led the strategic sourcing initiative and conducted the rigorous, multivendor review. Lexmark was selected based on the company’s products, federal-industry expertise, and ability to help the FAA achieve its cost savings objectives. This new contract is part of the FAA’s Strategic Sourcing for the Acquisition of Various Equipment and Supplies (SAVES) program, an initiative to reduce costs and improve capabilities and service to employees.
As part of the new contract, FAA employees can place orders for Lexmark devices through a variety of approved methods, including an exclusive, secured Web portal through which they will be able to review product options, delivery options, order history, lead time, inventory levels, and order status tracking.
Lexmark International, Inc., provides businesses and consumers in more than 150 countries with a broad range of printing and imaging products, solutions, and services that help them to be more productive. In 2005, Lexmark reported $5.2 billion in revenue and employed more than 13,000 people globally.
