Information Technology Enterprise Solutions - Software 2 (ITES-SW2)

Scope

The scope of the Information Technology Enterprise Solutions – Software 2 (ITES-SW2) includes COTS IT software products in the following 14 catalogs: Audio & Visual, Business & Finance, Communication, Database, Education, Internet, Modeling & Simulation, Multimedia & Design, NetOps, Office Suite, Operating Systems, Programming & Development, IT Utility & Security, and Specialized. ITES-SW2 also allows customers to fulfill a total solution requirement by adding related incidental services and/or hardware.

Ordering Open To: Army, DoD and other Federal Agencies

Ordering Instructions: Requests for software under ITES-SW2 are submitted via the CHESS RFQ or RA tools. The ITES-SW2 contracts are the Army’s mandatory source for the purchase of COTS IT software products. Army customers must follow the software order of precedence which is: Joint Enterprise License Agreements (JELAs), Enterprise License Agreements (ELAs) and Core Enterprise Technology Agreements (CETAs), first. Then, depending on their acquisition strategy, Army customers may utilize the ITES-SW2 contracts or DoD Enterprise Software Initiative (ESI) Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs). Customers must obtain a Statement of Non-availability from CHESS and/or an ITAS Approval from the HQDA G-6 if they wish to purchase outside of CHESS. Note that purchasing from an ELA or DOD ESI is considered purchasing through CHESS. See the CHESS FAQ page for further information.

Statement of Non-Availability (SONA)

Info:

Prior to requesting a statement of non-availability customers MUST determine if CHESS contracts can provide the required IT products. If a product is not available from CHESS because it has not been approved for use on the Army network by the US Army Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM), the statement of non-availability to purchase that product elsewhere does not authorize its use on the Army network. Before requesting a statement of non-availability you MUST verify that your product is not on a CHESS contractor DOD Enterprise License Agreement (ELA). A statement of non-availability cannot be processed without this verification. You may obtain verification by following the methods described (in the statement of non-availability request area) below:

Important Note Regarding Information Assurance (IA) Products: Verify that your product and version is listed on the DOD Unified Capabilities Approved Product List (DOD UC APL). For Information Assurance (IA) or IA enabled products not listed on the UC APL contact the HQDA CIO/G-6 Cyber Directorate Tools Management Team at ArmyIATools@conus.army.mil for additional guidance prior to requesting a CHESS Statement of Non-Availability.
