Microsoft today made couple of important announcements that will make the process of buying Surface devices for government agencies.
- Surface now on GSA – The United States General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule is a federal procurement vehicle which establishes long-term government-wide contracts with commercial companies. Surface Pro 3 has met all GSA criteria and, beginning today, US government customers may now purchase Surface through GSA. Contact your Microsoft account representative, or your preferred reseller to learn more. Or visit Surface.com/Ordernow and Surface.com/Government for details.
- Additional public sector resellers in the US, focused on bringing Surface to Government – In an effort to meet government customer’s buying preferences and address some specific federal procurement requirements, Microsoft has approved additional resellers to offer Surface Pro 3 to public sector entities.
Surface Pro 3 delivers the power of a desktop, the mobility of an ultra-thin laptop, and the convenience of a tablet touch screen and digital note-taking device to help government employees maximize their time wherever they are working. It reduces the overhead of having different devices for different purposes. Microsoft also highlighted that there are many great Government apps and accessories such as Democracy Live, Accela Inspector, and Urban Armor Gear’s new ruggedized case for the Surface Pro 3 which meets military drop-test standards (MIL STD 810G 516.6).
