DoD Enterprise Software Initiative

The DoD Enterprise Software Initiative (ESI) is a contract mechanism that establishes and manages Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) Information Technology (IT) agreements, assets, and policies for the purpose of lowering total cost of ownership across the DoD, Coast Guard and Intelligence communities. DoD ESI’s mission extends across the entire commercial IT life-cycle combining the DoD’s buying power with commercial software publishers, hardware vendors and service providers.

Website: DoD Enterprise Software Initiative

DoD ESI is sponsored by the DoD Chief Information Officer (CIO) to save time and money on commercial software, IT hardware, and services. Through its joint team of experts, requirements are consolidated and agreements are established with IT providers resulting in a unified contracting and vendor management strategy across the entire department. In its first ten years of operation, DoD ESI achieved a cost avoidance of over $3 Billion off prices established on the GSA Federal Supply Schedule.

Product Categories that are included in the DoD ESI are:
