Company Among Prime Contractors for Multiyear, $5 Billion Contract
Federal agencies will be able to tap the power of advanced Verizon information technology, from the network to the desktop, under a new contract awarded by the U.S. General Services Administration.
Verizon was named a prime contractor under GSA’s CONNECTIONS II contract, which has a contract ceiling of $5 billion over nine years and three months. The company will compete to provide individual federal agencies with an array of professional and managed services and custom networking solutions at federal buildings and campuses. The offerings will include communications equipment and networking, professional services, consulting and support services, customer services, technical support and custom solutions covering the point of connection with the agency’s network all the way to the user desktop.
CONNECTIONS II is a companion contract to GSA’s Networx and local telecommunications contracts, under which Verizon provides a range of advanced voice, data, wireless and Internet services to government agencies around the world. Verizon previously was a prime contractor under the predecessor contract known as CONNECTIONS.
“There is an expanding role for IT and professional services in government, and through CONNECTIONS II we will provide a one-stop shop for federal agencies to buy the communications solutions the agencies need to meet their evolving requirements,” said Susan Zeleniak, group president, Verizon Federal.
In addition to CONNECTIONS II, Verizon provides a wide range of advanced communications and IT services through several federal government contracts, including GSA’s Networx program, GSA Washington Interagency Telecommunications System (WITS 3), GSA Alliant, GSA Local Services Acquisition (LSA) contracts and GSA Schedule 70 contracts.
Verizon is the largest provider of communications services to the U.S. federal government and one of the largest providers of advanced communications and information technology services globally. With a broad portfolio of advanced Internet protocol (IP) services, professional services, managed network services and systems integration available to government agencies of all sizes, the company is helping to transform the way government customers -- and their constituents -- do business.
