Verizon Business Wins $120.8 million Contract with the U.S. GSA

Verizon Business won a contract valued at up to $120.8 million with the U.S. General Services Administration to provide a range of local voice and data services to federal agencies in five Mid-Atlantic states. The agreement, known as the Mid-Atlantic Local Services Acquisition (LSA) contract, covers three years and four renewable option years. Under terms of the deal, the GSA and other federal agencies in the Mid-Atlantic region - which covers Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia and West Virginia - can immediately buy local voice and data services. They include Centrex, Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) services, network-based voice messaging, private line data services, and related managed and professional services.

The LSA contract also provides an option to add VoIP in the future. The contract replaces three Metropolitan Area Acquisition (MAA) agreements that Verizon Business had in Philadelphia, Baltimore and Norfolk, as well as the Mid-Atlantic Access Contract for Centrex Services.

Verizon Business is the largest supplier of communication services to the federal government.
