Verity Professionals today announced they have been selected by the State of Florida to provide state-wide agencies with Information Technology (IT) Services and Solutions. Florida has been in the process of transforming their technology acquisition process since late 2003. To this end, the state conducted an exhaustive and highly competitive bid designed to identify the highest quality suppliers with proven qualifications and the financial stability to support the state’s technology objectives. Within this bid, the Florida Department of Management Services set stringent criteria for a supplier rationalization process designed to reduce the overall vendor community and identify only the highest quality technology firms.
Being formally selected by the state of Florida as a value added supplier allows Verity Professionals to supply such services statewide.
Florida invests approximately 1.2 billion per year in IT services across its 41 state agencies. These agencies operate under an enterprise perspective equivalent to the technology spend of a Fortune 5 company. Additionally, with hundreds of miles of coastline, the state has a large number of Federal Homeland Defense projects. All Florida cities and 67 counties can acquire technology services through this contract.
