    You should read the article a little more carefully next time. Your comment does not apply. This is a services and software contract, not a hardware contract. These are completely different service lines within the company.

    $2.5 Billon for just over 60,000 users?? That's over $10,000 per seat per year. Considering that's just software & services and not hardware, that seems exteremly high, but I guess is typical for government over spending. Economies of scale for services should allow for a few key processes that can be repeated for each step and purchasing power should drive down licensing driving the cost down significantly.
