U.S. Army, Air Force and DISA Commit to Windows® 8 for $617 Million

Microsoft® succesfully signed a three-year contract with the U.S. Department of Defense, bolstering the software maker’s latest innovations. The $617 million USD contract will supply the Army, Air Force and Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) with Windows® 8 and Microsoft Office® 2013.

The U.S. Department of Defense is a major customer for Microsoft® and, with long-term contracts in place, a stable source of income. Additional contracts between Microsoft® and other branches of the U.S. government are expected to be signed in the near future.

A press release from the Pentagon identifies cost as a major factor in awarding the contract to Microsoft®, citing $70 million USD in annual savings compared to previous contracts.
