Level 3 Awarded GSA Contract for D.C. Area Services

The U. S. General Services Administration (GSA) awarded a Washington Interagency Telecommunications System (WITS 3) contract to provide communications services for all federal agencies and other authorized users in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. The Federal contract allows Level 3 to bid on business issued by all Federal government agencies representing approximately 800,000 federal users.

Level 3 said it is one of two companies that were awarded the base four-year contract, with four additional one-year options. This contract gives Level 3 access to a market that up to this point has been available to only a single, incumbent telecommunications provider.
