Sue Lemon, Office of Chief Information Officer, will give us an overview of the new Agency Consolidated End-user Services (ACES) contract. The new Agency Consolidated End-user Services (ACES) contract is one of five procurements under NASA’s IT Infrastructure Integration Program (I3P), which will transform NASA’s IT Infrastructure services from a Center-based model to an enterprise-based management and provisioning model.  ACES will provide a consolidated solution for delivering end-user services across the Agency to achieve increased efficiencies and reduced costs through standardization. Services include: provisioning and support of desktops, laptops, cell phones, personal digital assistants, printers, and office automation software. The NASA Shared Services Center (NSSC) is the host Center for ACES. The ACES service provider is Hewlett-Packard Enterprise Services (HPES). ACES replaces the Outsourcing Desktop Initiative for NASA (ODIN) contract.  The ODIN to ACES transition affects every employee who currently has ODIN equipment.  The ACES transition began at LaRC in early September 2011 and is scheduled to be completed by February 28, 2012.
