The Defense Information Systems Agency’s contracting arm will reduce the fee it charges to clients for enterprise procurement services by start of fiscal year 2020. DISA said Monday that the Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization will implement a 2.25 percent contracting fee for IT and telecommunication services starting Oct. 1, down from 2.5 percent. Fees for enterprise license agreements will remain at a rate of .25 percent.

“As a working capital fund organization, DITCO is required to charge its customers a fee to recover costs associated with their operating and capital budget activity,” said Angela Rule, defense working capital fund accounting operations chief at DISA. “These costs include all labor, non-labor, general, and administrative overhead costs.”

DITCO is a contracting organization providing IT, satellite bandwidth, telecommunications, combat support computing and enterprise procurement services to the Department of Defense and other non-DoD organizations.
