The state’s technology department made 40 purchases of IT goods in June and spent more than $51 million on the top five — slightly less than in May, when CDT spent more than $54 million on the top five IT goods buys.

The California Department of Technology spent exactly $51,380,867.22 on its five most expensive such buys compared with $54,576,222.33 in May. Here, with rounding, is what that money paid for, based on data in the State Contract and Procurement Registration System:

  • $23 million to Dell Marketing for Microsoft Azure infrastructure-as-a-service/platform-as-a-service (IaaS/PaaS) public cloud services — “(Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program) FedRAMP Moderate — service catalog offerings,” apparently in the area of software maintenance and support fees. This is a two-year contract, from June 1-May 31, 2024.
  • $18 million to Dell Marketing for Microsoft Azure IaaS/PaaS public cloud services — “FedRAMP High — service catalog offerings,” apparently in the area of software maintenance and support fees. A key difference between FedRAMP Moderate and FedRAMP High is the higher number of controls with which the latter must comply. This contract, too, runs from June 1-May 31, 2024.
  • $5.2 million to Crayon Software Experts LLC, most likely for Microsoft Office 365 government community cloud E5 application suites for all language, through Microsoft Volume Licensing. This is a nearly four-year contract, from June 1-March 31, 2026.
  • $4.6 million to Enterprise Networking Solutions (ENS) for subscriptions to ServiceNow’s IT Operations Management Operator Enterprise version two and other software maintenance and support products. (ENS and Taborda Solutions were acquired in August 2021 by Fulcrum Technology Group, a global tech investor in IT infrastructure and cloud solutions.) This is a three-year contract, from June 28-June 27, 2025.
  • $584,000 to Indigov Corp. for customer relationship management (CRM) software-as-a-service licensing and support. This is a three-year contract, from June 24-June 23, 2025.
