The U.S. General Services Administration awarded extensions to Verizon for contracts held by the company under the agency’s Networx program, which U.S. federal agencies can use to procure network and communications services from Verizon until the government transitions to a new, comprehensive solution-based contract, Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions, or EIS.
The Networx contract extensions feature a one-year base period and two one-year options. Following are the contracts held by Verizon that the U.S. General Services Administration recently extended.
- Networx Universal: Extended to March 2020, Verizon’s Networx Universal contract was set to expire in March 2017.The contract was originally awarded in March 2007.
- Networx Enterprise: Extended to May 2020, Verizon’s Networx Enterprise contract was set to expire in May 2017. The contract was originally awarded in May 2007.
“The technology landscape is shifting dramatically and federal agencies require access to advanced communications, IT and security solutions to enable their digital government initiatives to streamline operations, boost employee productivity, and enhance the delivery of citizen services,” said Michael Maiorana, senior vice president of public sector markets, Verizon Enterprise Solutions. “We are appreciative of the long-standing collaborative relationship we have forged with the GSA and our newly extended Networx program contracts will help ensure that we continue working together to enable federal agencies to deliver on their mission commitments in the U.S. and around the globe via reliable and secure network services for years to come.”
