GSA and DISA Form Satellite Communications Partnership

The U.S. General Services Administration and the Defense Information Systems Agency are creating a common marketplace for commercial satellite communication services with a goal of providing significant savings to defense and civilian agencies, as well as state, local and tribal governments. GSA provides a centralized delivery system of products and services to the federal government.

GSA's multiple award schedules and indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contracts will be used and the value is expected to exceed $5 billion over 10 years.

"Why manage separate contract vehicles that offer essentially the same services when we can combine forces?" said Tony Montemarano, DISA's Component Acquisition Executive.
