Verizon Business Awarded GSA Contract for D.C. Area Services

The U.S. General Services Administration awarded Verizon Business a Washington Interagency Telecommunications System (WITS 3) contract under which Washington D.C.-area federal government agencies can obtain a broad array of local telecommunications services and products.

The WITS 3 contract, which includes a four-year term with four one-year optional extensions, is valued at as much as $1.8 billion if all extension options are exercised. The WITS 3 contract covers local telecommunications services and products for federal agencies in the National Capital Region (NCR), which includes Washington and portions of its Maryland and Virginia suburbs.

Verizon Business holds the existing WITS2001 contract, which it was awarded in 2000 and expires in January 2008.

The Networx program is among the largest federal communication contracts in history.
