DON Enterprise Software Agreements
Discounted savings for DoD components, Intelligence Community
By DoD ESI Navy Software Program Managers - January-March 2018
Enterprise Software Agreements -- Updated March 22, 2018

The DoD Enterprise Software Initiative (ESI) is an official DoD initiative sponsored by the DoD Chief Information Officer (CIO) to lead in the establishment and management of enterprise COTS IT agreements, assets, and policies. DoD ESI lowers the total cost of ownership across the DoD, Coast Guard and Intelligence Communities for commercial software, IT hardware, and services.

DoD ESI was formed in 1998 by Chief Information Officers at the Department of Defense to save time and money on commercial software. A joint team of experts (Software Product Managers or SPMs) consolidates requirements and negotiates with commercial software publishers, hardware sellers and IT service providers resulting in a unified contracting and vendor management strategy across the entire department.

In its first 10 years of operation, DoD ESI achieved a cost avoidance of over $3 billion off prices established on the GSA Federal Supply Schedule by negotiating discounts of as much as 86% off list prices for software, hardware and services. Smart purchasing practices yields better contracting terms and conditions for DoD programs.

For more information on the ESI or to obtain product information, visit the ESI website at www.esi.mil.

For assistance please contact a Software Product Manager at http://www.esi.mil/AskAnExpert.aspx.

Information and links reflect guidance for Department of the Navy personnel. For contracts and information pertinent to the other services, DISA, other DoD and federal agencies, please go to the ESI website at www.esi.mil.

The Cisco Technical Knowledge Library (TKL) provides Department of Navy users with access to valuable Cisco intellectual property, including a wide range of technical white papers, design guides and on-demand videos based on Cisco's broad network optimization expertise. There is also Cisco press titles, case studies, validated configurations, and self-study guides to help you understand and avoid common problems and accelerate learning on Cisco products and technologies. TKL is organized into five architectural solution modules — Wireless, Security, Network Infrastructure, Collaboration, and Data Center.

Cisco Technical Education (CTE) offers just-in-time training on network routing, switching, data center, and security technology, from any location. Department of Navy administrators may also develop curricula, track student activities and print portal utilization reports.

A range of technical services are provided through that agreement.
