IMPORTANT NOTE:

Bluecoat & Smart Filter Webfiltering ELA (W91QUZ-06-A-0006) held by SMS Data Products was cancelled on 30 Sep 2016. Until a new agreement is awarded, the following guidance for acquiring Webfiltering software will apply:

After 30 Sep 2016, customers may acquire products through the use of the GSA Information Technology Schedule 70 Contracts, or any other contract vehicle. However, Army customers will be required to first use ITES-SW for Webfiltering related requirements.

If the ITES-SW contract vehicle cannot support customer requirements, Army customers will need to request a Statement of Non Availability (SONA) and a CIO/G-6 Information Technology Approval System (ITAS) waiver.

Instructions for the SONA and ITAS waiver process can be found on the CHESS IT e-mart website https://chess.army.mil/Content/Page/SONA.

If a customer has an existing Delivery Order with or without option periods extending beyond 30 Sep 2016, the reseller will honor the Delivery Order and all option periods until its completion.
