"We are delighted to have been chosen by the National Science Foundation to provide the level of expertise and quality IT services that they require," said George Newstrom, president of Dell Services Federal Government. "We look forward to working collaboratively with NSF to ensure their constituents have the right technology and a seamless experience to fulfill their mission in research and education."
